Ranks of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and gunmen moments ago were involved in a shootout at a hotel located at Ogle, East Coast of Demerara (ECD).
According to a Police source, one of the gunmen has been shot and is presently en-route to the hospital under heavy police guard. Meanwhile, four others have been arrested.
