and the man who allegedly killed
him were severely injured in a
Both men were warded in critical
condition at the San Fernando
General Hospital with Patterson s
relative barely surviving a gunshot
wound to the head.
The suspected murderer suffered
heavy blood loss after a gunshot
to his leg severed a major artery.
Police said the 27-year-old sus-
pect was asleep with his common-
law wife at their home off Upper
Hillside Drive, San Fernando, a
stone s throw away from Patter-
son s home.
He was awakened around 7.30
am by gunshots outside his home
and, as he ran outside, he was shot
in his foot.
He was taken to hospital by fam-
ily members and as police went to
get information, Patterson s rela-
tive, who is well known to the
police, was also brought to the
Investigators believe there was
a shootout between the men over
Patterson s killing, resulting in both
of them being shot.
Southern Division police, includ-
ing ASP Rawl Ramdeo, Insp Don
Gajadhar, PC Ali, PC Snaggs and
PC Crawford responded and while
combing the bushes near the
scene, they found a revolver and
Investigators believe the guns
were used in the shootout, one of
which was also used in Patterson s
The guns will be sent for ballistic
testing for confirmation.
Patterson, 27, of Medine Street,
San Fernando, was standing along
the busy Mucurapo Street around
4.30 pm Friday when a gunman
ran up and shot him three times.
He fell to the ground and died as
the suspect ran through a track
and hijacked a red Hyundai Matrix
along Coffee Street.
The mini van was later recovered
at Lewis Street, San Fernando.
The Guardian was told that a
group of men were looking for Pat-
terson after he assaulted a man
along Coffee Street last week.
Patterson, who is well known
to police, was arrested and charged
for marijuana possession two
weeks ago but was out on bail.

was the mistake people were making.
It was just a tax.
Imbert said that VAT was a tax on
sales so that the Government could get
revenue to run the country, support
social safety networks and subsidies.
He said what the Government pre-
ferred was to have as few exemptions
and as low a rate as possible.
Imbert said by doing this the Gov-
ernment could use the revenue collected
to assist the disadvantaged and people
at the lower end of the spectrum.
When asked what measures the Gov-
ernment had in place for the scenario
of inflation caused by an increase in
prices, he said naturally items that were
not subject to tax before would demon-
strate an increase in price. Imbert said,
however, that would be countered by
the general reduction in the rate of VAT
He said the net effect was something
that could not be measured at this point
in time. "We will have to wait and see,"
