The hire car driver who was shot and robbed by bandits early this morning is presently in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. The man underwent emergency surgery to remove a bullet from his abdomen after he was shot during a brazen robbery and carjacking in Durban Backlands, Georgetown.
Leroy Blair, 38, was reportedly shot by one of three bandits on motorcycles after which they relieved him of an undisclosed sum of cash and his motorcar.
Based on reports received, the now injured man travelled to the area to drop off someone when he was attacked and shot. He was picked up by public spirited citizens who rushed him to the hospital.
