Trinidad and Tobago’s murder toll continues to climb. The latest murder is that of 45-year-old Bri­an Taitt, a father of three. Police reports state that Taitt was shot and killed by a lone gunman at around 3am on Wednesday.

Residents of the Cocorite area are now fearful for their lives, lamenting that the area is unsafe. Taitt has been described by relatives and neighbours as a kind, honest and straight forward person. They say they do not know who would have wanted him dead.
