The hotelier who reportedly gunned down a 30-year-old driver on Saturday last following an altercation in Subryanville, Kitty, Georgetown is still in police custody and the file has been sent for legal advice.

This is according to the Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent Jairam Ramlakhan on Monday.

INews had reported that on the day in question, Jason De Florimonte of Fifth Avenue Subryanville, Kitty, Georgetown was killed following a series of events that reportedly started with an altercation between him and his girlfriend.

Based on information received, the deceased, who is a driver, was parked in front of the Tourist Villa Hotel and Bar located at Lot 95 Fifth Avenue Subryanville at about 01:45h, where he had the misunderstanding with his 24-year-old girlfriend.

This online publication understands that at this point a handyman attached to the hotel confronted the couple, which eventually led to a verbal altercation between him and De Florimonte.

The handyman reportedly attempted to leave the scene, but the driver gave chase and ran into the hotel owned by the suspect.

At this point, the perpetrator, who was said to be a licenced firearm holder, opened fire on the driver, reportedly shooting him four times to his right side chest, resulting in his subsequent death.

The police were summoned and the hotelier was arrested and placed into custody, while the body of De Florimonte was taken to the Georgetown Hospital.

A postmortem examination conducted earlier today determined that he died as a result of multiple gunshot injuries.

Investigations are currently ongoing.
