Roger Bumbery, called ‘Don Dick’ who once made the list of Guyana’s ‘most wanted’ , was killed execution-style at around 00. 45 hours today in his Lot 724 Good Hope, East Coast Demerara home.
Reports indicate that the 57-year-old was shot twice in the head, allegedly by two gunmen, who had apparently pursued him into his home, after attacking him as he rested in a hammock outside his house.
Police said that Bumbery, who was of “questionable character”, was resting in the hammock, located in his verandah, when his reputed wife was awoken by several explosions. Upon checking outside, she saw Bumbery lying in a pool of blood in the kitchen.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at the GPHC.
Three spent shells and a warhead, all of small caliber, were recovered from the scene.
Police said Bumbery had a pending court case for wounding another an last March.
