30 May Port of Spain Trinidad: The murder toll climbed to 141 with the shooting of a man in East Port of Spain and the stabbing of a soldier in Tobago.

Ronald Morrison became victim number 140 when he was shot while visiting his sister at East Dry River, Port of Spain.

According to police reports, Morrison was in the yard at his sister's home when a masked gunman approached and shot him in the head. He was taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital where he died later that night.

Besson Street Police are investigating.

Victim number 141 is Private Andrew Haynes who was killed in Tobago.

The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force and the Scarborough CID have launched separate investigations.

Haynes, 24, joined the Regiment on September 29, 1999, and-though posted in Tobago-was attached to the First Infantry Battalion, Charlie Company, based at Camp Ogden in St James.

His father, Sgt Andrew Haynes, is also a member of the Regiment but is now on resettlement training.

According to reports, Haynes, who was off-duty at the time, was in the company of other soldiers who were liming at Caribbean Cuisine Bar in Scarborough when there was an altercation between the soldiers and other patrons.

What started out as an exchange of words turned physical and, in the melee, four soldiers were injured. Haynes was stabbed and taken to the Scarborough Regional Hospital, but succumbed to his injuries.

Of the three other soldiers, Privates David Lynch and Kerwin Brown were treated at the Tobago hospital and discharged, while Pvte. Pollard Daniel was flown by helicopter to Trinidad where he was in critical condition at the Port of Spain General Hospital.
