Delon ‘Demon’ Morgan who was wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of Deon Stoll was this morning nabbed during a road block exercise on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD).

The man was reportedly a passenger in a car heading to Berbice. It is believed that the man was on his way to Suriname. However, he was taken into custody and is assisting the police with their investigations into the murder of the gold dealer.

Captured: Delon Morgan

The second wanted man, Lennox Estwic of Lot 640 South Amelia’s Ward, Linden is still on the run. Nevertheless, several other persons including a doctor remain in Police custody.

It was reported that Stoll was shot and killed after two masked gunmen attempted to rob him. During the foiled robbery, the Essequibo businessman returned fire, hitting one of the gunmen.

A security guard attached to the El Dorado Trading company was also shot during the shootout.

Stoll, aka “Mow” hailed from Charity, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), but is said to also have resided in Bel Air, Georgetown.

Reports are that around 10:20h on Monday morning, Stoll had been in a motorcar (PPP 6727) driven by Powley, when the duo arrived at El Dorado Trading Limited.

Still on run: Lennox Estwic

A white Toyota motorcar with tinted windows that had appeared to be trailing Stoll’s vehicle also stopped across the road from the business place moments after Stoll had arrived at that location.

Two gunmen, donned in rags/handkerchiefs used to conceal most of their faces ran out of their vehicle and rushed towards Stoll’s car.

One gunman opened the door at the driver’s side and a scuffle began between him and Powley, who soon exited the vehicle to better defend himself. Powley received a gunshot wound to his arm in the process while his assailant rushed back to the waiting white Toyota motorcar.

At the time this was happening, the other gunman had rushed to the front seat passenger door, where Stoll had been, and opened it before attempting to snatch something from Stoll.

The businessman also appeared to have been putting up a fight from inside of the vehicle but was shot to his stomach. His shooter then ran away towards the direction of the vehicle that he had arrived in but Stoll also exited the car (PPP 6727) with his handgun, firing shots at the gunman.

Dead businessman, Deon Stoll

The gunman also returned fire while trying to get back to the white Toyota car, falling to the ground twice in the process, before managing to rush back into his vehicle.

The white Toyota motorcar then quickly sped away from the scene as the gunmen made good their escape.

A few days later, the doctor, who is reported to have attended to the wounds of the injured bandit, along with others, were hauled into the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Eve Leary, Georgetown, in relation to Stoll’s murder.
