A man who had accused Police Commissioner Gary Griffith of choking, punching and putting a gun to his head has been shot dead.
Reports indicate that Cecil Skeete, 50, was shot several times near to his Freedom Street, Cocorite home on Sunday night.
In August, Skeete’s son, Ronell Pierre, was shot and killed on the Western Main Road, Cocorite.
Skeete alleged in a recent story in the Trinidad Express that Griffith abused him while at the Four Roads Police Station.
Griffith denied the allegations, which had been supported by an image of the police station’s diary where all incidents are recorded.
Skeete then recanted his story, saying the incident did not happen.
