LESS than a day after Tobago recorded its 11th murder, two more people were shot dead while liming outside a bar.
The island’s murder toll has now reached a record high of 13.
Dead are 61-year-old Frith Alleyne and 33-year-old Akeim Fritz.
A police source told Newsday that police were called to a double murder just after 1 am at Milford Road in Crown Point in the vicinity of the Sherwin Williams paint compound.
The source said police were told that a car passed and gunmen started shooting at a group of men around 12.55 am.
Alleyne and Fritz were killed, and a third man was wounded. He was taken to the Scarborough General hospital for treatment.
