Two wanted men
killed by police

crimes were shot dead during a
reported shootout with police
yesterday in Malick, Barataria.
The police identified the dead
men as Obika “Beaker” Roberts,

In response, residents at Mal-
ick yesterday blocked the road at
Upper Seventh Avenue near the
house where the men were killed
in a fiery protest.
However, their protest action
was short-lived as Fire officers
from the San Juan Fire Station
extinguished the blaze and po-
lice took control of the situation.
No one was arrested.
The residents disputed the po-
lice’s version of the shooting and
called for a thorough investiga-
Family members said they in-
tend to lodge a report at the Po-
lice Complaints Authority today.
Asked about the photos in
which Roberts was seen posing
with high-powered rifles and
wads of cash, one family mem-

ness what he did or did not do.
“Everybody has to live out here

Roberts, police said, was
wanted for murder and posses-

and ammunition. Mitlan was
recently released from prison.
He was also a suspect in several

pronounced dead on arrival.
Police said they recovered two
revolvers and several spent shells
at the scene.

was killed in the yard of his common-law wife
Radhica Pooran along Dalloo Road, Gasparillo
around 6.15 pm.
Palmer had an argu-
ment with two men,
Ravi Pooran, his wife’s
brother, and the suspect.
Police was told the sus-

you watching me so for?”
before a fight broke out
between Palmer and the
After the suspect suf-
fered several blows from
Palmer, he went to a house at the back of Pooran’s
home and returned with a gun to shoot Palmer.
Ravi tried to stop the suspect but the suspect
opened fire, shooting Ravi and Palmer multiple
times. He then ran off. Police last night launched
a manhunt for him. Ravi, 30, was undergoing sur-
gery at the San Fernando General Hospital last
Initial reports suggest that Palmer was shot in
the head, shoulder and abdomen. ASP Ali Moham-
med, Gasparillo police; the Homicide Bureau of
