Police are yet to find a motive for the murder of a Tunapuna man who was shot while going to his outhouse on Saturday night.
According to reports, Ganesh Cudjoe was at his Bamboo Trace, Tunapuna home around midnight on Saturday when he went outside to use his latrine.
Thirty-three-year-old Cudjoe was ambushed before he could reach the outhouse and shot multiple times.
He died on the spot.
Police say Cudjoe was a known drug and firearm offender. His murder brings the number of people killed for the year to 451.
Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith had told the country that he will be judged by the number of murders.
In an interview last year, the top cop said he understood that a decrease in other major crimes will not be the barometer by which people will judge him but rather based on the number of citizens that are murdered.
He said: “In coming into office, there was a decrease in comparison to August 2017; there was a decrease of 33 per cent in comparison to September last year, there was a decrease of 27-odd per cent in comparison to October last year. So, there was actually a decrease. Having said that, it picked back up again in November, and there was a dramatic increase in homicides in December last year. So, obviously, the barometer, what people will always look at is homicides, and you are quite correct.”
