Fifty-one-year-old Rupert Randolph Gill, of Parfait Harmonie, West Bank Demerara, was yesterday stabbed to death after he intervened in a row over the burning of DVDs.
The incident occurred around 17:30hrs, a short distance from the man’s home.
According to eyewitnesses, Gill was standing at a neighbourhood shop when the assailant came and asked the shop owner about some DVDs.
The shop owner in return answered the man in the negative, much to the assailant’s annoyance.
The eyewitnesses further told this newspaper that Gill intervened in the argument, since he and the shop owner were “good” friends.
The assailant directed his anger to him and stabbed him once in the neck. Gill staggered out of the shop onto the road where he collapsed. He was picked up and rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital by neighbours.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at the institution. The shop owner and his wife refused to comment on the killing. The wife told Kaieteur News, “I was not at home and I’m unaware that any murder took place at my shop.”
Gill’s family and relatives were at the Ruimveldt Police Station trying to locate the suspect who was reportedly from River View, Ruimveldt and who was said to have fled there after the killing.
Up to press time the killer remained at large.
