Ewing remained unaware while the second driver attempted to get his attention without being too obvious.

That driver signalled to Ewing who did not notice, before jumping into his vehicle and driving off.

Left standing, Ewing was shot.

Police responded and he was taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital.

The shooting happened meters away from the Nelson Street Boys and Girls Primary School as well as the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
