– bandits on CG posed as customers
Bandits on a CG motorcycle shot a waitress dead at around 19.15 hrs yesterday in the Chinese Delicious
Restaurant at D’Urban Street, Wortmanville.
Debbie Blackman, of Critchlow Street, Tucville, was reportedly shot while standing behind the counter, after serving the bandits, who had gone there under the pretext of purchasing food. Some reports suggest that the robbers killed the mother of five because she refused to cooperate with them. It is unclear whether the robbers took anything of value.
A senior police official told Kaieteur News that police were preparing to review footage from surveillance cameras at the restaurant, since it is believed that the brazen act was recorded. Kaieteur News understands that the restaurant owners were behind the counter and out of sight when the shooting occurred.
Blackman’s body remained in the restaurant for some two hours before being taken away by porters from the Lyken Funeral Parlour.
The murder occurred just five days after two bandits, also on a CG motorcycle, shot dredge owner Ashook Ragghu dead and wounded his wife, Shyrazadi Ragghu, when their car stopped at the traffic light at the Vlissengen Road and Regent Street junction.
The robbers escaped with a bag containing some $4M and the slain man’s licenced firearm.
Travis McDougall, 24, of Lot 422 East Ruimveldt Housing Scheme, was charged last Friday for Ragghu’s murder. His alleged accomplice is still to be charged.
Yesterday’s murder came at a time when police have reported an escalation in gun-related crimes.
