Agricola residents today continued their cry for justice
Agricola residents today continued their cry for justice and were given the assurance by the Police Commissioner, Leroy Brummell, that where ever the investigations lead the police will go.
Brummell today met with the aggrieved relatives and friends who staged a protest outside of his Eve Leary office.
He said that the ranks involved have been removed from active duty.
Two days ago ranks of the Guyana Police Force, swooped down on the community and killed 17-year-old teen, Shaquille Grant, in what the police are reporting was an exchange of gunfire, but residents are saying that the police were the only ones shooting and Grant was executed by one of the officers.
Grant was reportedly shot in the forehead and chest. The Commissioner said that in addition to the normal police investigations the Office of Professional Responsibility is also investigating the matter.
Opposition political parties are calling for a thorough investigation and for the officers involved to be interdicted.
AFC Chairman, Nigel Hughes, believes that criminal charges should be laid against those involved in the shooting incident.
