– after robbery at family function
Police are now being hailed as heroes by a Campbellville family after they shot and killed two bandits who robbed persons gathered at a family function at a Lot 53 Seaforth Street, Campbellville home.
The bandits who are still yet to be identified were killed during a shootout with ranks on a mobile patrol at around 21:00hrs yesterday.
Sources say that the dead men hail from Plaisance, East Coast Demerara.
Kaieteur News understands that the men were killed minutes after carrying out a robbery at the Seaforth Street residence. A man who was at the function said that the bandits both armed with guns, came at the gate and requested to speak with “Kevin.”
The man, who declined to divulge his name, said that he told the men that no “Kevin” was there. It was then the bandits whipped out their firearms and demanded that the occupants remain still.
One of the bandits searched almost everyone present at the event and took away cash, jewellery and other valuables. The other gunman ransacked the home and made off with several cellular phones and other items.
“When we tried to move they (the bandits) fired shots.”
The bandits then left the premises but the patrons chased them down.
They managed to escape, but the victims alerted a passing police patrol.
According to information received, ranks on the patrol managed to track down the two armed men who sought refuge in the churchyard behind Campbellville Secondary School.
The armed men allegedly shot at the police, but were riddled during the ensuing shoot-out.
Up to late last evening their corpses were at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) waiting to be identified.
