JUST over a month after notorious gangster Vaughan “Sandman” Mieres was killed, his cousin was ambushed and shot dead yesterday afternoon.

Police told the Sunday Express that shortly before 2.30 p.m., Dillon “Mission” Mieres of Maracas, St Joseph, and his wife, Mary Reyes, were travelling in a white Toyota Corolla heading north along Maracas Royal Road. As they drove near the WASA water station at El Luengo Village, a white Nissan AD Wagon slammed into their car.
