Police have confirmed that one of the weapons used in Monday night’s execution-style killing in Stone Avenue, Campbellville was also used in the Charlestown slaying of Mark ‘Lil Mark’ Caesar last weekend.
Crime Chief, Seelall Persaud, yesterday told this newspaper that the .45 spent shells recovered at Monday night’s scene matched those found at the scene of the Charlestown killing.
However those were the only matches made.
According to Persaud, the 7.62×39 spent shells recovered at the scenes of the last three execution-style killings do not correspond.
A month ago five persons, including a three-year-old boy and his mother were killed after the car in which they were travelling was riddled with bullets at Cummings Lodge, Lower East Coast Demerara.
The police had recovered several 7.62×39-spent shells, which they said did not match any other collected from crime scenes at that time.
Police Commissioner Henry Greene had told a media conference that the Cummings Lodge killings may have been linked to a drug deal that went sour.
Caesar and one of the persons killed in the Cummings Lodge shooting as well as one of the victims of last Monday’s execution were reportedly close associates.
Yesterday Crime Chief Seelall Persaud disclosed that based on the circumstances surrounding the separate executions, there is a connection.
However, he declined to say in what way the killings were connected.
Police have since warned gangs, groups and individuals that they would be met with the full force of the law as patrols have since been intensified.
