Two of the policemen fingered in the Agricola shooting cannot be located
Two of the three policemen fingered in the Agricola shooting death of 17-year-old Shaquille Grant, cannot be found, and the Police Commissioner today said, all efforts are being made to locate them. The Police Commissioner today confirmed, that two of the three suspects have gone missing. He said, they were on desk duty up until Friday and he had requested that they be placed in lockdown. He said that was apparently not done and now he wants to find out too why his order was not followed.
There are reports that the two men may have headed to an outlying region or a neighbouring country. Capitol News understands, that they may have also been in contact with attorneys. The one Policeman who is still around has apparently been complaining that he never did any shooting and does not understand why he was placed on desk duty.
The 17-year-old was shot three times. The Guyana Police force wrapped up its probe late last week and dispatched a file to the Police Complaints Authority. The Police Complaints Authority is expected to submit a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions for advice.
Shaquille Grant was shot dead when a party of six policemen swarmed down on the yard, he and friends were hanging in at Agricola, claiming, that the young men were planning a robbery. The police opened fire on the young men claiming they had fired at them.
Eyewitnesses said, no one fired any shots at the police, since all of the young men were unarmed. The young man who died they said, was first shot to his side and the policeman later stood over him and shot him to the head. He received an additional gunshot to the buttocks.
