[www.inewsguyana.com] – Three men have been arrested by the police for questioning in connection with the shooting death of Security Guard Wilfred Steve Stewart and the shooting of Mario Gohill, which occurred on Monday night at Sterling Products Ltd Office, at Providence, East Bank Demerara.
iNews was reliably informed that the men were picked up from a village along the East Bank of Demerara after the police received certain information. The police reportedly conducted searches on the homes of the men.
A sliver grey motorcar was also impounded as the investigators review the surveillance footage they obtained from the Company.
iNews understands that five armed masked men invaded the Company at approximately 17:45hrs, disarmed the Security Guard and then shot him to death. They then shot Gohill, who is an Indian National working as a Chemist with the Company.
From all indications, the men attempted to rob the Company but failed in that bid as they were unable to make their way to the Accounts Department, after the alarm went off.
They took away the service weapon of the dead security guard before fleeing the scene.
