The sister of Crime Watch host, Ian Alleyne, Danah Alleyne was rescued by police after being accosted at her home by her boyfriend. The assailant was then shot by police. He died at hospital.
Keone Paryag had reportedly wielded his licensed firearm during his interaction with police officers, outside the Biljah Road, Chaguanas residence, before officers opened fire on him, shooting him in the foot. At around 8pm he succumbed to the injury, having lost a significant amount of blood. Doctors said he has alcohol and cocaine in his system.
It is reported that Alleyne has fired several shots while in the apartment, which prompted neighbours to call the police. The officers managed to persuade him to come outside, however efforts to get him to hand over the firearm, proved futile.
A video of the situation has been widely shared on social media. Investigations are continuing.
