[] – Senior police investigators have confirmed that the murder of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission employee, Trevor Abrams and that of businessman Randolph Singh are linked to the attempted execution of former policeman Otis Grant.

Police sources told iNews that the GGMC worker has been on the radar of the police for some time now. Abrams was shot several times in a drive by shooting at Little Diamond, East Bank Demerara on Friday, February 27.

Information revealed that he was driving along the Public Road when a man in another vehicle drove up alongside him and discharged several rounds at him which caused him to veer off the road and into a canal.

Public spirited persons quickly rushed to his assistance and pulled him from the canal but he was pronounced dead at the Diamond Hospital.

Meanwhile, former policeman, Otis Grant is said to be in a stable condition at a city hospital after he was shot on Monday, February 23 on Regent Street.

According to media release from the Police Force, Grant, 39 years of Betverwagting, ECD, was sitting in a parked motor vehicle on Regent Street, Georgetown, when two men approached and discharged rounds at him.

The perpetrators escaped in a waiting motor vehicle. According to reports, Grant was dismissed from the Guyana Police Force and was previously questioned in connection with a number of criminal activities.

Additionally, owner of a vulcanizing shop, 41 – year – old Randolph Singh, known as ‘Rat’ was shot dead at his business place on February 18, while another man was wounded.

iNews understands that the incident occurred at approximately 23:00hrs at the vulcanizing shop located on South Road, Georgetown between Cummings and Light Streets.

Reports indicate that Singh of 207 Charlotte Street, Bourda, Georgetown received multiple gunshot wounds to his abdomen and other parts of his body. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to the police, Singh and one of his employees were sitting opposite Singh’s business place when a man armed with a firearm approached and discharged several rounds in their direction and escaped on a motor cycle.

The suspects in all three shootings are still at large. The fallout is said to be in relation to a deal that went sour over a property that Singh has acquired and failed to honour his financial obligations to persons who were connected with the transaction.
