A 29-year-old man from Brighton Village, Corentyne, Berbice was shot on Sunday night at a barbeque by a man armed with a handgun who robbed him of two gold chains valued at $1.5 million.
The police state that, on Sunday, Damion McKenzie called ‘Tuckman’ was at Alness Village in Corentyne at around 2:15 hours for a barbeque event. He was dancing with a female when the suspect allegedly approached him from behind and grabbed his two gold chains from around his neck, before running off.
The victim ran behind the suspect who eventually escaped through a clump of bushes after firing three shots in the victim’s direction. One of the shots hit McKenzie on his right thigh.
He was rushed to the Port Mourant Public Hospital before being referred to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital for further treatment. As of Sunday afternoon, the suspect has not yet been arrested.
