2 Chinese murdered in Trinidad

Press "PandaGuidesOfficial"!

A young Chinese couple were shot dead outside their apartment in the tiny Caribbean state of Trinidad and Tobago, the Trinidad Express reported.

Police are still investigating the motive for the killing Shirui Zhao, 32 and Yanli Gu, 30 on Thursday night. The couple ran a members club and a casino in the town of Marabella, according to the report. Two men in dark coloured hoodie jerseys used high-powered weapons to shoot the pair while they were seated in Zhao’s black Toyota, and local police recovered more than 75 spent shell casings at the scene, the newspaper added.

Investigators said the victims were escorted to the building by armed security guards. But when the men started shooting the security vehicle sped off. The driver of the security vehicle was quoted by the newspaper as saying that he was unable to fight the men off with his handgun.

The newspaper added that the Chinese nationals were specifically targeted by the killers, and that it was not a random robbery attempt because nothing was taken from the couple’s vehicle.

The Chinese embassy in Trinidad said on Saturday that two Chinese nationals were killed by shooting, but it did not name the victims.

The embassy statement urged the local police to apprehend the murderers and to protect Chinese nationals in the country.

Another Chinese couple were kidnapped and reportedly killed by Islamic State last month.
