Unconfirmed reports have emerged, all of which indicate that bandits just staged a deadly attack on a family at Good Hope, on the East Bank of Essequibo in Region 3 (Essequibo Islands/West Demerara).
It is not clear how many persons have died but unconfirmed reports, including several posts on the social media site Facebook, indicate that the home of the Munir family was also set alight. They are said to be stalwarts in the rice industry in Region 3.
Residents reported hearing gunshots, followed by screams of help from the couple. INews will bring you more on this developing story as verifiable details become available.
These eyewitness photos of the home believed to have been set alight by bandits were posted by media personality Romel Roopnarine on his personal FB page a few minutes ago.
