Ray Goulding, the 32-year-old man who was shot dead by a licenced firearm holder during an attempted robbery at Belvoir Court, Blygezigt Gardens, Georgetown, in the wee hours of Sunday, has been identified as a serial robber.
Yesterday, this newspaper was informed that Goulding’s name was linked to several robberies but he was never convicted.
Prior to his death, he was wanted in connection with more than six armed robberies around Georgetown, more so, in the Stabroek market area. He was said to be a part of a gang in Agricola.
Goulding, of Diamond New Scheme, East Bank Demerara, was identified on Monday by relatives after he was shot the previous day when he attempted to rob one of three passengers in a car. The person was being dropped off in the area.
According to reports, the three friends had left the Giftland Mall, and headed to Blygezigt Gardens, where one of them resides. It is alleged that the resident had just exited the car and was heading to his gate when a man with a gun approached him. On seeing this, the driver reversed, and the bandit shot in the direction of the vehicle, hitting the driver in the arm.
One of the passengers, who was armed with a licenced handgun, returned fire, hitting the bandit in the chest. He succumbed at the scene.
Police recovered a .32 pistol that allegedly belonged to the slain man, along with seven .32 spent shells and a cellular phone.
