[www.inewsguyana.com] – Linden Primo, the man who allegedly fired a single shot in the air at Congress Place on Sunday is now in police custody.
iNews was reliably informed that Primo was arrested at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) last evening, as he attempted to board a flight to United States of America.
This news agency was also able to confirm that thus far the police found no record of the man being the holder of a firearm license and as such is being questioned as to how he came by the firearm.
The Police have been on the hunt for Primo since the incident took place, but could not locate him until last night.
During a press conference at Congress Place on Sunday, Granger confirmed that indeed a gunshot was fired during the 18th Biennial Congress of the People’s National Congress Reform, however he could not say who fired the shot, but he is adamant that the person involved is in no way connected to the PNCR.
He told reporters that an investigation was launched. The Leader sought to explain that persons “broke the barrier and forced their way into the auditorium…someone was in danger of being crushed.”
