Bandit shot dead during Robbery

Gunshots rang out in Meadowbrook last Monday night leaving a bandit dead and one of his partners in crime nursing gunshot wounds at the Georgetown Public Hospital.


It all started when four gunmen invaded a house in the area just after 8pm, demanding cash.

The occupants one of whom is an overseas based Guyanese were having a “get together” outside on the veranda when the gunmen barged in on them.


The ordeal lasted for several minutes as the gunmen terrorized the family, but the owner of the premises managed to get hold of his licensed firearm and discharged several shots, one of which hit one of the fleeing bandits.


The bandit was taken to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival while the other suspect who is now under police guard was arrested after being positively identified.
