    Two friends were gunned down in Arouca on Tuesday night minutes after leaving the wake of a man who was gunned down hours earlier. According to a police report, at about 9 pm Anderson Forbes, 27 and Anderson James, 32, were seated in a Nissan Tiida, at Phase 3, Bon Air Gardens when a gunman opened fire.

    Both men were taken to hospital where they later died. The gunman escaped.

    Forbes lived at Siskin Drive, Kiskadee Crescent, Bon Air Gardens and James was from Kiskadee Crescent.

    Speaking with Guardian Media yesterday at Forensic Science Centre, relatives said that they believe that the murders, in which the three friends were killed, were linked but added that they have no idea why. Police sources said that Ronald “Tek” McKie’s murder was believed to have been a reprisal for a murder, which took place in 2016.

    However, McKie’s relatives have denied this saying that McKie was set up. McKie, 33, whom police described as a suspect in several robberies, was shot dead around m1 am on Tuesday while standing in the yard of a friend at Bon Air Gardens.

    “These boys were all good friends and it is definitely somebody calling the shots because they wanted them dead…for why is what we don’t know and we would like to know. More importantly, we want justice and we are praying that no more friends are killed,” one relative said.

    In a separate incident, the man, who was murdered on Monday while driving his car along Bagatelle in Diego Martin has been identified as Jarrelle Arismendez.

    Arismendez, police said, had two addresses as Laventille and Belmont. Police said he used to ply his car for hire as a PH taxi and believed that his murder was drug-related.

    On Monday, Arismendez was shot in the head and neck. His body was found slumped behind the steering wheel of his car along Cascade Drive, in an area known as the Pines. Investigations are continuing.
