At about 2100h. last night Thursday May 14, 2015, four men armed with cutlasses and a handgun entered a home at Belvedere, Corentyne, through an open door, and held up Ramesh Puran, 49 years, his wife and two other relatives, and demanded cash and jewellery.
The perpetrators took away a quantity of jewellery during which Ramesh Puran was shot to his body and a cousin, Devika Ramotar, chopped to her head after which they escaped.
Ramesh Puran was pronounced DOA at the Port Mourant Hospital, while Devika Ramotar was treated and sent away.
Investigations are in progress.
