Labourer shot during robbery

A 35-year-old man is now hospitalised with a gunshot injury to his leg after he was shot during a robbery on Sunday morning on Charlotte Street, Georgetown.
Injured is Wesson Hinds, a 35-year-old labourer, who was reportedly targeted by two men wearing face masks.
Police said that the incident occurred at about 09:40h and one of the assailants, armed with a handgun, was the pillion rider on a motorcycle.
According to Police, Hinds was standing on Charlotte Street, opposite the Truth, Power, Glory, and Sanctuary Church, facing north when the suspects approached from the south on the motorcycle.
The pillion rider disembarked, demanded belongings from Hinds – asking “if he get anything” and without delay, discharged a round from a handgun, hitting him in his left upper thigh. The suspects then fled on the motorcycle. The man was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted a patient.
Police are continuing their investigation. (G9)
