Police are guarding a woman in hospital who they believe is connected to Tuesday night’s execution style shooting that left motorcycle dealer, Kurt David dead.
The shooter, according to the police, is said to be a popular Water Street, Georgetown store owner.
The woman is nursing a gunshot wound to her foot at a private city hospital. Police believed she sustained the injury during the confrontation that led to David’s death.
Sources close to the investigation have indicated that detectives have a suspect in mind and the woman is linked to him. Meanwhile the shooter remains on the run.
Kaieteur News understands that the woman is claiming that she suffered the wound during a robbery around the same time that David was shot.
However that robbery was not reported to the police who only learnt about the woman’s shooting by chance.
There are also reports that the woman was shot when a relative’s gun went off accidentally. That relative has not yet been located.
A police source said that the woman is not cooperating fully with investigators.
“Let’s just say that we have our suspicions,” said the source.
The 31-year-old David, of Seventh Street, Eccles, East Bank Demerara, was gunned down around 21:45 hrs on Tuesday by a man who called him out of his home.
He was shot at least 11 times at close range in the chest and back while standing near his front door. The police said that the victim was found inside his home.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
His relatives are still tightlipped, claiming that they don’t know what could have caused the shooting or who was responsible.
One relative would only say that the slain man was self-employed and the father of one.
But investigators are examining the theory that David might have been the victim of a jealous husband, who reacted angrily to a text message that was sent to his wife.
A neighbour of the dead man told Kaieteur News that she was at home on Tuesday night when she heard several gunshots. When people dared to emerge from their homes they saw David’s bullet-riddled body outside his house, disputing the version offered by the police about the position of the body.
Police were unable to give a motive for the execution-style killing.
David’s death comes after a lull in execution-style killings this year.
