A 22-year-old man was shot in Aranguez last night.

The victim told police he was traveling north along Aranguez Main Road, Aranguez, with his girlfriend in his white Toyota pickup truck around 8 p.m. As he approached Sookia Trace West, he heard several explosions.

The victim then felt a burning sensation in his right shoulder and drove to the side of the roadway.

He realized he had been shot.

The injured alerted the police and a team led by Cpl Singh responded.

The victim was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex.

His condition is said to be serious but stable.

PC Caraballo continues the investigation.

Meanwhile, police are searching for a 27-year-old man who allegedly opened fire on a couple in Tobago.

The incident reportedly happened along Northside Road in Mason Hall at around 10.20am yesterday.

The victims, a 42-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, were in a Mitsubishi Lancer when the suspect entered the roadway and tried to stop them.

The driver slowed down and the suspect then pulled out a gun and shot the two.

The driver, afraid for their lives, sped away from the scene.

No one was injured, but the car suffered gunshot damage.

PC Campbell is continuing the investigation.
