Cricketer shot dead in Caribbean armed robbery

The cricket world has been rocked by news of the death of British cricketer Adrian St. John.

St. John, a Chris Gayle Academy captain, was on holiday on the island of Trinidad, where he was tragically shot during an apparent armed robbery. He was 22-years-old.

Speaking of the incident that occurred this past weekend, a Foreign Office spokeswoman said:

"We are in contact with authorities following the death of a British national in Trinidad and are ready to provide consular assistance."

Described by his cousin Leandra Alexander as "very cool and jolly", St. John was a University of Hertfordshire graduate in history and philosophy.

Earmarked for future cricketing success, the London-based student had been in Trinidad since the country's national carnival in February. A 24-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
