Wanted: Keon David
WANTED: Keon David

Kurt Anthony Duncan was, in the wee hours of Monday, gunned down while trying to make peace between a man and a woman outside of Seeta’s Bar in Station Street Kitty, Georgetown.

Based on information received, the 32-year-old father of six of Pike Street, Sophia, Greater Georgetown was shot once to his chest by an ex-policeman who was at the establishment at the time.

DEAD: Kurt Duncan

Initial reports from the Police revealed that at about 2:00h on Monday, a woman who was imbibing at Seeta’s Bar got into a heated argument with a handyman who was at the time wiping the ground. That argument escalated into a scuffle, and Duncan, who was also at the drinking spot, intervened.

The suspect, Keon David, then whipped out a gun and discharged a round that hit Duncan to the chest. The injured man was picked up and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

David, on the other hand, left the scene, but the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has since issued a wanted bulletin for his arrest. His last known address has been given as Sophia, Greater Georgetown. He is said to be 32 years old and a former member of the Police Force.

Duncan’s distraught family members are still trying to come to grips with what has happened, and are pleading for justice. His wife, over at her residence, had strength only to call for justice for her husband.

“I ain’t resting! I got to get reason! I is not one of the wife or one of the mothers what the family is just get killed just like that and it left like that. I ain’t giving up! I got to get a reason why! I ain’t giving up for nothing!” the woman cried.

Anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect is asked to contact the Police on telephone numbers 226-1389, 226-7476, 911, or at the nearest Police Station.
