    Three men are dead following a police-involved shooting incident in Mayaro on Saturday night.

    The hunt is also continuing for a 4th suspect.

    Around 8:45pm that day, a 41-year-old fast food delivery driver was in his vehicle when he was approached by a man posing as a customer.

    Three other men, armed with a firearm, a cutlass and a knife, also allegedly approached the vehicle and announced a robbery.

    The men took a quantity of cash, a cellphone and food.

    Following a report, responding officers took up strategic positions and subsequently confronted the four suspects who allegedly shot at them.

    The officers returned fire, hitting three of the suspects, while the 4th escaped.

    All three men died at the scene and are yet to be identified.

    The TTPS says a revolver loaded with one bullet, spent casings, a cutlass, knife, cellphone and cash were recovered at the scene.

    Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the 4th suspect is asked to call the Mayaro Police Station or call 999.
