Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : May 2nd 2014 Contents a stone s throw from the murder scene, Abraham said
both the dead man and the suspect had matters in
court for marijuana possession.
The officers also were praised by ACP Glenda Smith,
who said they were protected by God since none of
them was injured during the shootout.
The senior officers said another suspect evaded
capture but an arrest would be made soon.
The killing, they said, was linked to the murder of
Stephen St Hillaire, who was gunned down on Sunday.
St Hillaire, of Jacobin Avenue, Maloney, was heading
west along the Western Main Road, Carenage, around
7.30 am when he stopped at Glencoe to urinate. A car
pulled up alongside him and someone inside shot him
several times. He died on arrival at the Seventh Day
Adventist Hospital, Cocorite.
Commenting on the brazen way London was killed,
Smith said: "This shows that criminals have no respect
for the court or the country."
Asked about increasing security around the courts,
Smith said there was adequate security on a daily
basis. She added that she was sending a signal to
anyone with illegal motives coming near courthouses,
especially Arima, that the police would be covert and
overt in their tactics.
Also commenting on the issue of increased security
was head of the Homicide Bureau, ACP Wayne Dick,
who was at the scene. He said it would be inaccurate
to say there would be any increased presence at the
courthouse as the information regarding the shooting
had only moments before reached acting Commissioner
of Police Stephen Williams.
Speaking with the media shortly after identifying
her brother s body, Wendy London said London, the
father of four, from Arouca, was the last child in their
family and was a "beautiful person."
Passersby were overheard saying: "People don t care
about God no more," and "Gary Griffith would have
plenty to say about that," while one man was heard
saying: "He is an old-school boss," referring to Lon-
