In three unrelated killings that

with the media at the Forensic Sci-
ence Centre, St James are calling
for an end to the bloodshed.
One such person was a female
relative of Peter Brown who was
gunned down on Friday night.
According to police Brown, 24, was
chased by gunmen from the Hous-
ing Development Corporation
(HDC) apartments opposite River-
side Plaza, Port-of-Spain around
10.30 pm. Brown was struck by a
car and as he was attempting to
get up he was shot and killed.
The woman who did not want
to be identified said Brown used
to be involved in criminal activity
but walked away from a life of
crime when his daughter was born
two years ago.
According to the woman, Brown,
of Foster Road, Laventille was con-
vinced to rob a man who was wear-

man was used as ruse to lure ban-
dits and had gunmen lying in wait.
She said as Brown and others
attempted to rob the man gunmen
came out and killed him.
In another killing, the father of
Jason Lightfoot, described his son
as a gamer who was not a street
child. Clifton Lightfoot, an under-
taker with Celestial Funeral Home,
said he has learnt to deal with death
as a part of life, but still was not
prepared for his son to be killed.
He said he had not seen his son
in six months but would speak with
him regularly on the telephone. He
added that his son was not known
to have any enemies and would
spend most of his free time playing
