Police to take care of injured policeman shot accidentally
He told this newscast that the force would also ensure that the Elvis would get his full salary. The best efforts of doctors at the Woodlands Hospital could not prevent them from amputating the leg of the23-year-old policeman.
A police corporal at the Joint services base/ JASAG at Eve Leary accidentally shot Elvis on the 20th of March.
Samuel Elvis had expressed some disappointment with the senior management of the Guyana Police Force in the way they are handling his matter since he was injured in the line of duty.
He said he remembered the patrol returning from an operation and were on standby. He recalled seeing the corporal cranking his weapon but paid little mind since according to him the corporal was well trained and experienced.
He then blamed the doctors at the GPHC for not administering the right treatment during the early stages of his injuries. His colleagues rushed Elvis to the GPHC after he was shot.
Persaud said this is not the end of the road for the young policeman and he is positive that he Elvis will return to at some point.
