Upon hearing the sound of the
four gunshots which ended her
husband Fazir Mohammed s life,
Shaheeda Mohammed said she
hid in a bedroom until relatives
came and found her.
Recalling the incident at their
St Mary s, Moruga, home on Sun-
day night, Shaheeda said when her
husband s killer pointed a gun
within two feet of her face, she
cried out to him.
This was when he jumped on
the assailant, giving her a chance
But as she hid in the room, she
said, she heard her husband scream
out after the first gunshot.
Within a few seconds, three
more shots were fired. The tragic
death was a violent end to the cou-
ple s relaxing Sunday evening spent
Shaheeda recalled: "First the guy
came and said good night, so I told
my husband somebody was calling,
go and see. He went out and talked
to the guy and came back inside.
"He said the man was looking
for somebody by the name of
"My husband said: Well you
have mistaken me, I am not Larry,
he lives in his house in the back
"My husband came back inside,
sat down and we continued watch-
"Then all of a sudden the gate
opened and the guy came in front
the door way. He said: What hap-
pened to this man, boy? so I
guessed it was the same person
"He had a bandana on his face,
a cap on his head and I cannot say
if he ran or walked, but he reached
in front me, two feet away and he
was holding a gun and pointing it
to my face.
"He didn t say anything, he just
kept holding the gun right there
and my husband got up and two
of them get into a little fight.
"I don t know how I got between
them but I passed, went to the
bedroom and locked the door. I
didn t see anything after that.
"I heard a gunshot and heard
my husband bawl out Umph!
After that gunshot I heard three
more, one after the other," Sha-
Larry was her husband s
nephew-in-law, but she said they
did not have a close relationship.
Nothing was stolen from the house
and police are yet to determine a
motive for the murder.
Mohammed, 45, was employed
as a checker at the Princes Town
Regional Corporation. According
to relatives and neighbours, he was
a jovial person who never got into
arguments with anyone.

People s National Movement (PNM)
representatives yesterday met with the
Maxi Taxi Association and were told firm-
ly that their rapid rail proposal was "rub-
Eon Hewitt, the association s president,
said: "We put all our cards on the table
and they said they will take it back to their
leader. Any time that train come here and
they subsidise it, they will have problems."
Asked what kind of problems, Hewitt
replied, "I can t tell you."
He further told the T&T Guardian that
from now until September 7 (the general
election date), the association would be
informing members of its stance on the
matter and it would be up to them to vote
for whomever they wanted.
Hewitt stressed the association was non-
political. He said at the meeting with PNM
officials at the association s City Gate,
Port-of-Spain office, the association
showed how the rail plan would not work.
The PNM representatives, whom Hewitt
declined to name, told them they would
do nothing before they got data.
"Their data will tell them it s foolish-
ness," he said.
Hewitt said he had a copy of the PNM s
rapid rail plan since they came up with
the idea in 2009.
He said the association studied it care-
fully and, based on their first-hand knowl-
edge of transportation in T&T, "there isn t
much logic in it. It s rubbish, foolishness."
Listing some of the ways the rail would
not work, Hewitt said, to begin with, it
would only make three stops along the
Port-of-Spain to San Fernando route, in
Chaguanas, Couva and San Fernando.
Hewitt said maxi taxis work on the bus
route but if, under a PNM government,
they are rerouted to do short drops from
communities to train stops, 18,000 reg-
istered taxis and another 25,000 PH drivers
would be thrown on the breadline.
Widow recounts husband's murder Police seek help
in locating two men
Police are seeking the public s assistance
in identifying a suspect responsible for a
break-in at a nightclub in Port-of-Spain, last
In a press release issued yesterday morning,
the T&T Police Service (TTPS) s Public Affairs
Unit provided a photograph of the suspect cap-
tured by the club s CCTV cameras after the
According to the release, the incident at 51
Degrees nightclub at Cipriani Boulevard, Port-
of-Spain, took place on July 27, with the burglar
escaping with a quantity of electronic items
and high-end alcohol. The exact value of the
stolen items was not revealed.
Meanwhile, the unit also issued a release
yesterday in which it sought information on
another man suspected of stalking women in
The suspect was last seen at Rituals Cafe,
in Nicholas Towers, Independence Square South,
on August 10, where he is alleged to have
approached a woman offering her $10,000 to
work for him.
The suspect, who represented himself as an
American citizen, after having his offer rejected,
is alleged to have followed the woman to her
workplace, the release stated.
The suspect is described as being of mixed
descent, bald-headed, between 45 and 50 years
old, and approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall.
While the suspect did not commit an offence
during the incident, police sources said, he was
still wanted for questioning.
"It is part of the TTPS s move to take a more
proactive approach in the fight against crime
as opposed to being strictly reactionary," an
officer close to the investigation said yesterday.
