Ex-con shot by prison buddy

An ex-convict is now nursing an injury to his right-side hip after he was shot on Sunday by someone whom he had met while serving time at the Lusignan Prison.
The shooting incident reportedly took place at Sparendaam Squatting Area, East Coast Demerara (ECD), as the victim was on his way to the gambling shop.
The injured man was identified as 33-year-old Rawle Franklyn also called “Rawle Dog” of Sparendaam Housing Scheme, ECD.
Based on reports received, the now injured man and the suspect, who is referred to as “Sad Killer” and “Dutchy”, are known to each other since they both spent time at the Lusignan Prison. The suspect told Police that he would from time to time receive death threats from his prison buddy.
However, on the day in question at about 21:45h, Franklyn was on his pedal cycle making his way to a gambling shop in the Sparendaam Squatting Area, ECD, when he was confronted by the suspect who was on the access bridge.
The suspect reportedly told him “Look how long I waiting on you”. In the same breath, the suspect reportedly reached to his left side waist, drew a firearm and discharged a wound in Franklyn’s direction which hit him to the hip.
After committing the act, the suspect fled the scene. Meanwhile, the injured man summoned a friend who took him to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted a patient and is in a stable condition.
The matter was reported and checks were made for the suspect but he was not located. An investigation is currently underway.
