Bernadette Campbell, one of the two passengers who were shot by a lone gunman on Tuesday night, remains in a critical condition in the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC)’s High Dependency Unit (HDU).
Campbell, 40, of Lot 60 West Road, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara, was sitting in the front seat of a minibus when a gunman, posing as a passenger, shot her in the stomach before stripping her of her jewelry.
Dexter Carr, 20, who was sitting next to Campbell, sustained minor injuries when one of the bullets grazed his side.
The incident occurred around 20:00 hrs last Tuesday at Plaisance ‘Line Top.’
Both patients were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where Carr was treated and sent away and Campbell remained a patient.
Yesterday, this newspaper was told that the bullet was removed from Campbell’s stomach during emergency surgery Tuesday night.
According to reports, Campbell and Carr were sitting in the front seat of the bus when the woman looked around and observed a male passenger behind her acting in a suspicious manner. The vehicle then headed to the Plaisance ‘Line Top’, where passengers began to disembark.
Kaieteur News understands that the ‘suspicious looking’ passenger exited the vehicle at the same time and pointed a handgun at Campbell and Carr, and ordered them to disembark. He then discharged three shots, hitting Campbell in the stomach and grazing Carr.
The gunman reportedly then relieved the injured woman of her jewelry before fleeing.
