Meanwhile, on Sunday, the murder of Chinese businessman, 42-year-old Qumehlanj Cao at his home in Arima, has left police questioning whether a hit had been placed on his life.

Reports indicate that Cao was at his home asleep in bed at around 7:30am, when two gunmen entered his home. The man’s wife was forced inside the house before the attackers proceeded to the bedroom where Cao was killed. He had been shot multiple times and died on the scene. His attackers fled, taking nothing before leaving.

Cao was the owner of Wei Mei restaurant located along Tumpuna Road in Arima.
