Linden businessman killed during robbery

Linden shop owner Romel Gomes, called “Eddie”, of Buck Hill, Wismar Housing Scheme, Linden, was on Monday afternoon found dead at his place of business.
The 53-year-old Gomes was discovered dead after gunshots were heard in the area at about 18:00h. Gomes was reportedly found with a suspected gunshot wound to the head, his throat slit, and his hands bound. His attackers have apparently fled the scene with his vehicle, since it was reported missing.
When neighbours transported Gomes to the hospital, he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police have since launched an investigation into the incident.
