The Police are now hunting a murder suspect known as “Short Boss” who reportedly shot and killed a Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD) man outside of a party being held in Sophia, Greater Georgetown on Thursday night.
Dead is 21-year-old Ronsley Clarke, a mason, of Timehri, EBD who was shot in front of his girlfriend at around 19:30h.
INews understands that the victim and the suspect are known to each other and reportedly had a disagreement about a month ago while at a party.
However, on Thursday night Clarke was in the company of his girlfriend Alesha Thomas at Sophia “C” Field main access road when the suspect was reportedly seen drawing a small silver pistol from his jacket.
An alarm was raised but before anything could be done, he reportedly discharged three rounds in Clarke’s direction, two of which struck him, one to his right side rib and one to his right side upper back.
The gunman then quickly made good his escape in an unknown direction.
The Police were called to the scene and Clarke was picked up and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Two .32 spent shells were recovered from the scene of the shooting.
Investigations are ongoing.
