The Plaisance bus park is now short one minibus conductor as 27-year-old Travis Lowenfield passed away on Thursday evening, after undergoing surgery at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
It is alleged that the Sparendaam East Coast Demerara resident was shot in his stomach while standing in the verandah of his two -storey home, at about 12:30 hours on Thursday afternoon. The details in relation to how the man was shot are still unclear.
A source close to Kaieteur News said that the now dead man and a friend were “playing around” with the gun when it accidentally went off. However, the weapon is still to be found.
When Kaieteur News arrived at the GPHC shortly after the accident occurred, the man’s older brother, who asked that his name be withheld, explained that he was in the bottom flat of the home when he heard an explosion. He added that he ran toward the sound, and saw his brother clutching his stomach.
“He was in the verandah walking towards me, holding his belly. Blood was pouring out. He tell me he get shoot,” the sibling said. He added that after his brother informed him that he had been shot, he did not ask him any questions and instead, rushed him to the hospital.
The conductor’s brother said that he did not see anyone else at that time, so he is unaware as to how his brother was shot.
As investigations into this matter continue the details in relation to how Travis Lowenfield was shot remain uncertain.
