At approximately 02:30hrs today, one bandit was shot dead, another apprehended while the third fled the scene, following an attempted robbery on a home in Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara.
According to the owner of the home, who wished to remain anonymous, he was sleeping at the time of the incident but heard strange sounds coming from his door.
Upon inspecting, the businessman found the three men attempting to “bend the door to get into the house”.
He stated that he also noticed that one man was holding a firearm, and it was then that he opened fire.
The police were contacted, and with their prompt response, they were able to arrest one of the three bandits.
Investigations are ongoing into the matter. (INews will bring more details in a subsequent report)
