A 39-year old man was shot and killed during a robbery at Onderneeming sandpit on the Essequibo Coast on Sunday night.
Dead is Dexter Prince, called ‘Rastaman’.
Reports are that Prince a father of one, was in the company of another man around 20:00hrs Sunday. They were selling pastries and other products from a minibus when they were attacked at Onderneeming by the bandits. Prince was shot in the head by the gunmen and the bus later slammed into an electrical pole.
Prince and the other are attached to a bakery which is located in South Road in the city.
Persons in the area noted that Prince was warned in the past to avoid selling in the area at late hours since a number of criminal elements frequent the sandpit area. An eyewitness told the Village Voice News that she spoke to him minutes before he travelled to the area.
Police are investigating the incident.
