– Incident allegedly linked to Club Privilege confrontation
A man who police said was going to be a victim of an execution when they intercepted three
individuals and retrieved an AK 47 rifle, a 9MM pistol, three magazines and eighty live rounds in a house at Campbellville on Sunday, allegedly knew someone wanted him dead.
As such, the individual, who has been identified as Leon Duncan called “Whistle” of West Ruimveldt, has been keeping a low profile.
Additionally, he has been fingered in a shooting at Club Privilege located at the Tower Hotel on Main Street, Georgetown, two weeks ago, which the hotel management had denied took place.
Deputy Commander of ‘A’ Division, Calvin Brutus said that ranks have received information linking Duncan to the club shooting—this was supported by surveillance footage. They are now trying to locate the alleged shooter.
Regarding the shooting at the Rio night club, this newspaper was told that Duncan was a friend of 19-year-old Ryan Sergeant, who was gunned down outside the club last September.
Reports are that the bullet which struck and killed Sergeant was actually meant for Duncan, a former murder accused.
According to information received, Sergeant and Duncan along with other friends went to the club when the 19-year-old left and went outside to meet a female.
While inside, Duncan allegedly got into a fight with an ex-phantom squad member, who is among the three suspects found with the weapons in Campbellville.
Reports are that after the ex-phantom squad member pulled out a gun in the club, the former murder accused ran outside and in the direction of where Sergeant was standing—it was there that the young man was shot.
Duncan was freed in 2016 for the murder of Imtiaz Roopnarine at the Cool Square hotel in 2013. He narrowly escaped death last September. It is believed that the ex-phantom squad member and his cohort had since been hunting him down.
Last week, the men allegedly got information on their intended target and according to sources, they were believed to have been in the planning process of an attack when the cops raided the Campbellville house and apprehended them and retrieved a high powered rifle.
