Residents of Haslington were left in shock last evening after a “causal” argument between two brothers-in-law ended in deadly fashion.
Fifty-two year-old Terrance Adams was killed around 20:00hrs outside a shop he operated. Adams’ alleged assailant, Les Hamilton, was said to have been under the influence of alcohol when the incident occurred.
The dead man’s brother, Leyland Nelson, told Kaieteur News that Adams and Hamilton got into an argument just around 14:00hrs yesterday. He said that the dispute had simmered, but manifested itself again last night.
According to Nelson, when Hamilton began quarreling again, Adams brushed him off “because he knew he (Hamilton) was drunk.” Nelson said that his brother told Hamilton that he would deal with the issue “another time, when he (Hamilton) sober up” and so the argument died down again.
Nelson indicated that Hamilton then left the shop, “and I left a little after to go and buy tennis roll and cheese for us to eat”. He said that he was riding his bicycle returning to the shop when he saw a large crowd. Nelson said that he inquired and was told “Les jus’ jook up yuh brother.”
Nelson said that he rode further along the street and saw his brother lying on the road in a pool of blood.
Hamilton, who made no attempt to leave the murder scene, was apprehended on the spot, while the victim was rushed to Georgetown Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
