[www.inewsguyana.com] – Following the fatal shooting of 28 – year – old Adrian Bishop last night [Saturday, September 20] by a police officer, the Force is now claiming that Bishop made efforts to relieve the rank of the firearm during which a round was discharged that struck him to the neck.
The police version of what took place differs from that of residents in Hill Street, Albouystown, where the incident took place.
Residents are claiming that Bishop did not resist the officers but told them that he is not going to the police station, even though he was already in the vehicle. He was arrested for allegedly assaulting his ex – girlfriend, who is a police officer.
Eyewitnesses told iNews that the police officer then “cranked” his weapon and shot Bishop in the neck, after which he allegedly dropped the gun and exclaimed, “Oh Sh*t! I didn’t know the gun would go off.”
Eyewitnesses claim that the Police Officer then made a telephone call and informed some that “I just killed a man.”
However, according to the Police, while being transported to the police station, Bishop held onto a policeman who was armed with a shotgun and a struggle ensued during which he was shot to his neck.
“The case of the Crazy Ex”
Meanwhile, Bishop’s actual girlfriend, ‘Tasha’, explained that it was a case of the ‘crazy ex’.
She told iNews that she and Bishop lived together and that his ex – girlfriend, who was identified as a CID Officer, visited the Albouystown home and “created a scene.”
Tasha said that Bishop slapped the woman, which then prompted the Ex to call the Police.
