Guyana Police Force contacts Interpol to track down wanted policemen
The Guyana Police force has contacted Interpol hoping for some assistance to track down the whereabouts of the two policemen charged with the murder of Agricola youth, Shaquille Grant. Three policemen were charged but only one of them appeared in court. The other two had gone missing for a number of days and police investigators believe they may have left the country. Wanted bulletins have been issued for the two locally and now the Guyana Police Force is hoping that Interpol would be able to use its resources internationally to hunt down the two murder suspects.
Shaquille Grant was hanging out with friends in a yard at Agricola when a party of policemen ran into the yard and opened fire. Grant fell to the ground and eyewitnesses said, he was shot two more times by the police at close range. The 17-year-old was killed on the eve of his 18th birthday.
Meanwhile in connection with the latest police shooting death which occurred on Friday night outside the fish shop, the director of public prosecutions has been given a file from the police on the investigations asking for recommendations with regard to charges. The DPP’s office could offer its advice as early as tomorrow. Three police officers are in custody in connection with this case.
21-year-old Dameon Belgrave was with friends outside the popular fish shop on Friday night when the police chasing after another group of young men opened fire. One of the bullets hit belgrave and he fell to the ground. He was later pronounced dead at the Georgetown hospital. This morning the Police Commissioner travelled to the home of the dead young man’s mother.
