The police have launched an investigation into the shooting to death of an 18-year-old Rahaman’s Park resident.
According to a police statement, around 4:35 hours yesterday, Robb Street businessman, Patrick King, of King’s Guest House was awakened by a commotion on his premises.
The police stated that when the man went out to see where the noise was coming from, two men attacked him.
The police said that he discharged his firearm in the men’s direction. It was later found that a teen identified as Camilo Mitchell of 19 Rahaman Park, East Bank Demerara, was hit. He subsequently died.
The dead teen’s mother, Jennifer Williams, told this newspaper that she last saw her son alive on Tuesday night when he left home saying he was going to attend a party.
Williams said that she received a telephone call some time around 05:30 hours yesterday from another son who informed her that Camilo had been shot and killed.
The woman said that in the past her son had complained that he and the same businessman who shot her son had an ongoing feud. However the woman said she was not aware what the issue her son had with the man.
“He and this man had a problem and from what we hear de man see he early yesterday morning and they had another talking and he get shoot.”
The woman added that she was told that her son was shot and left to bleed to death for an hour on the road before being taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital.
According to the police the teen was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
According to Williams her son never had any run-in with the law and would have celebrated his 19th birthday next Tuesday. She added that her son worked two jobs to assist their family.
“He does do some mason work and some times he does work at de fisheries.”
Like the rest of the family, the woman said that she is worried that justice may not be served in this matter.
“From wha we hear, de police ain’t gon do no investigation they (the police) done believe de businessman so they just got it down that is a robber get kill,” a relative said.
This newspaper was told that the man was shot three times, once in his arm, another in his back and another in his chest.
