Trinidad & Tobago. W.I. - The steelband community is reeling in shock from the news of the unbelievable murder of twenty year-old Petra Abraham - a talented panist with Marabella-based Southern Marines Steel Orchestra.  It occurred last night, Tuesday November 16, in Trinidad, shortly before 11:00 p.m.

According to reports, Petra was on her way home from a netball event, and stopped off with friends for refreshments, when the establishment was help up by two armed men. When Petra attempted to flee, she was cold-bloodedly shot in her back.  She later died from of her injuries.
