…was visiting woman with friend
A 23-year-old man was shot dead Saturday night on Sunflower Street, Wismar Linden.
Dead is Delron McKenzie of Roxanne Burnham Gardens Georgetown. Police said two unknown persons carried out the attack.
Information received states that about 17:00 hrs McKenzie and another man left Georgetown for Linden to visit a female friend.
About 21:00 hrs, they arrived in Linden via public transportation and went to Church’s to purchase chicken.
McKenzie was given directions from his female friend via cellular to join a boat at the last stelling at the McKenzie shore. On arrival at the Wismar shore, McKenzie contacted the female via cellular phone and he was told to walk up the road through a street (Sunflower Street).
They then went through the street further down to a bridge and a short distance in the cross street. McKenzie then recieved another phone call in which the female told him to turn around since she will be sending a silver wagon to pick them up.
The men then walked out of the street where the said silver wagon car turned around and as McKenzie approached the car to open the back door, a man opened the door first and started to shoot at him and another male came out of the front passenger seat and opened fire too.
The man who was with McKenzie ran for cover.
The car had three male occupants at the time but McKenzie did not recognise any of them. They joined the car and continued to drive in a southern direction towards Silver City street.
McKenzie’s friend police said claimed that he does not know anything about the female.
The friend sustained two gunshot wounds on the left and right lower arm with abrasions to both of his arms. He was escorted to the Linden Hospital Complex where he was admitted a patient and scheduled to be transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation for surgery.
The body of McKenzie was then escorted to the Linden Hopital Complex where it was examined by the doctor on duty who pronounced him dead on arrival. The body was then escorted to the GJetso Funeral home awaiting Post Mortem.
Investigations are continuing.
