One man is dead and another injured during a drive-by shooting near the basketball court in Maraval just a stone’s throw away from Diego Martin East MP office Colm Imbert.
Police officers are at this time at the scene of the crime.
The deceased has been identified as Shaquille also known as ‘Papa’.
The other wounded man was taken to the hospital.
Preliminary reports stated that Shaquille was driving out onto the Morne Coco Road at about 12.20 pm when a heavily tinted silver SUV drove past and its occupants opened fire. Shaquille died behind the steering wheel.
Police believe it’s a reprisal shooting for Vaughn ‘Sandman’ Mieres, his wife, Alika “Letty” Dehere and two others’ murder that occurred at his Las Cuevas home on July 25.
Mieres, 44, was known as a Kingpin, a reputed drug and gun smuggler.
