The Police are on the hunt for two men for questioning in connection with the murder of a businessman, Deon Stoll, who was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in front of El Dorado Trading, Da Silva Street, Kitty, Georgetown, two Mondays ago.
The two wanted men are 23-year-old Lennox Estwic, of Lot 640 South Amelia’s Ward, Linden, Region 10, and 33-year-old Delon Morgan also called “Shane Morgan”.
This, the police said, is in addition to the four other persons who were arrested and questioned, including a doctor who is alleged to have treated an injured gunman that was shot during the heinous crime.
However, currently, much debate has surfaced as to whether or not the doctor in question erred or committed a crime by not notifying the police about the man he treated with a gunshot injury.
However, according to Chairman of the Council, Dr Navindranauth Rambaran, it would be premature to pronounce on the fate of the doctor at this time, as investigations by the police are still underway.
“The Medical Council of Guyana does acknowledge reports in the media of alleged misconduct by a medical doctor. As the matter is under investigation, the Council reserves the right to make its conclusion when all the facts of the matter are available. At this junction, however, the Council wishes to reiterate the Medical fraternity’s absolute support for the highest standards of medical practice while upholding the laws of Guyana,” he told Guyana Times on Sunday.
Meanwhile, another senior medical practitioner employed by the Public Health Ministry told this publication that the Guyana Medical Practitioner’s Act does not have a direct rule/law that states that a doctor must report such incidents to the police.
However, outside of this Act, and in keeping with the laws of the country, it is expected that any medical practitioner does so.
“It is the ethics that goes along with the profession…you should adhere to whatever are the laws of Guyana, it may not be in the Medical Practitioner’s Act but in other laws of Guyana, it would constitute absolute requirement to report the matter. Certainly, there are responsibilities outside of the Medical Act that have to be adhered to by citizens,” he stated.
It was reported that Stoll was shot and killed after two masked gunmen attempted to rob him. During the foiled robbery, the Essequibo businessman returned fire, hitting one of the gunmen.
A security guard attached to the El Dorado Trading company was also shot during the shootout.
Stoll, aka “Mow” hailed from Charity, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), but is said to also have resided in Bel Air, Georgetown.
Reports are that around 10:20h on Monday morning, Stoll had been in a motorcar (PPP 6727) driven by Powley, when the duo arrived at El Dorado Trading Limited.
A white Toyota motorcar with tinted windows that had appeared to be trailing Stoll’s vehicle also stopped across the road from the business place moments after Stoll had arrived at that location.
Two gunmen, donned in rags/handkerchiefs used to conceal most of their faces ran out of their vehicle and rushed towards Stoll’s car.
One gunman opened the door at the driver’s side and a scuffle began between him and Powley, who soon exited the vehicle to better defend himself. Powley received a gunshot wound to his arm in the process while his assailant rushed back to the waiting white Toyota motorcar.
At the time this was happening, the other gunman had rushed to the front seat passenger door, where Stoll had been, and opened it before attempting to snatch something from Stoll. The businessman also appeared to have been putting up a fight from inside of the vehicle but was shot to his stomach. His shooter then ran away towards the direction of the vehicle that he had arrived in but Stoll also exited the car (PPP 6727) with his handgun, firing shots at the gunman.
The gunman also returned fire while trying to get back to the white Toyota car, falling to the ground twice in the process, before managing to rush back into his vehicle.
The white Toyota motorcar then quickly sped away from the scene as the gunmen made good their escape.
A few days later, the doctor, who is reported to have attended to the wounds of the injured bandit, along with others, were hauled into the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Eve Leary, Georgetown, in relation to Stoll’s murder.
Meanwhile, anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the two wanted men is asked to contact the police on telephone numbers 226-1389, 226-7476, 226-7065, 226-6221, 911 or the nearest police station.
Investigations into the matter are currently ongoing.
