A bandit who was shot dead by a former police officer in San Fernando on Wednesday morning has been identified as Nicholas Junior Frederick.
According to reports, Frederick and another gunman walked into a bar located on the corner of Cipero and Sutton Street and attempted to rob two men from Mayaro.
The bandits robbed them of a gold chain and mobile phones before firing a shot at the men.
However, the former officer who was at the bar drew his licensed pistol and fired at the bandits, hitting Frederick in the chest.
He collapsed and died after running a short distance away on Sutton Street.
The other gunman escaped.
