He has been identified as Orlando Fredericks, also called ‘Bull Dog’ of Adelaide Street, Charlestown, Georgetown.
According to Police, Fredricks along with another man had earlier committed a robbery.
It is not clear if Fredricks sustained the injury during the robbery or was later shot by his accomplice.
Reports are that at about 23:35 hours two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun, held up a man in a shop at James and Non Pariel Streets, Albouystown, and took away his gold jewellery and escaped.
Investigations are in progress.
