35 year old Marlon Lane had been standing outside his Blitz Village, Pleasantville home around 3:05pm on Thursday when a blue coloured vehicle reportedly pulled alongside him and a man exited the vehicle. Several gunshots were fired in Lane’s direction and he was struck about the body.
The suspect reportedly escaped unhindered. Lane was rushed to the San Fernando General Hospital where he died.
The victim is said to have had several pending matters before the courts, including the charge of having shot a police officer in his head, robberies, arms and ammunition possession. He had been out on bail.
Police are preparing for reprisal gang attacks.
Investigations are currently underway.
