A bandit is now nursing gunshot wounds to both of his legs after being shot at by ranks of the City Constabulary early this morning when he broke into an electronics equipment store inside the Stabroek Market.
According to the police, the 24-year-old man who was identified as “Demon Booker” (Police spelling) from South Ruimveldt Squatting Area, was spotted by the ranks around 02:40hrs today.
Upon realising that he was caught while trying to execute a robbery in the Electronics City store, the Police said Booker attacked the City Constabulary ranks with a knife. He was then shot to his legs and is a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he is under guard.
Meanwhile, a claw bar and a bag with a number of cellular phones and laptop computers were retrieved and investigations are presently on-going.
INews understands that if the perpetrator had managed to flee with the items that he had already packed in his bag then he would have made off with over $2M worth in electronic items.
