(Trinidad Guardian) Police in the Western Division are bracing for an upsurge in gang-related incidents following the murder of Sheldon Trimmingham of La Puerta, Diego Martin.

Trimmingham’s murder came just over 24 hours after a gang leader from the area and another gang member were shot and wounded. That incident occurred around 9 pm on Sunday, where the gang leader was shot in the leg when gunmen shot up the vehicle he was in. Police sources said they believe Trimmingham was killed as a reprisal over that shooting.

A resident from the area, who wished not to be identified, said Trimmingham had been threatened during the day on Monday.

“He was nowhere to be found during the day and he knew they were out for him, but he chose to still come out in the night to lime,” the resident said.
