Kaieteur News understands too that around 01:15 hrs. on Tuesday last, Christopher’s friends came and picked him up to go to a party hosted by ‘Curl Up.’
According to police, a popular Disc Jockey (DJ) and Selector duo, reportedly told investigators that they were hired to provide their services for the Hill Street party.
The men told the police that around 06:00 hrs., while performing, they heard two to three explosions which they suspected to be gunshots. The release stated that as a result of the suspected gunshots, the 500 plus crowd that attended the party started to disperse.
The DJ and the Selector were subsequently informed that someone was shot and that caused them to abandon their performance and head to their respective residences.
Meanwhile, a taxi driver of Tucville Housing Scheme, Georgetown, told police that he was driving down Mandela Avenue, when he was stopped by three unidentifiable males, who were carrying the wounded Christopher.
The taxi driver further stated that he helped the men transport Christopher to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), where he was pronounced dead upon arrival by a doctor.
Christopher was reportedly shot to his abdomen. His body was examined and a suspected gunshot wound was seen at the center of his abdomen. Detectives reportedly visited the crime scene around 06:45 hrs. and several persons were questioned and statements were taken. Three persons were subsequently arrested and were placed in custody. The investigation into the alleged killing is ongoing.
Grundell is one of the two persons who were accused of murdering Marlon Seon Rodney called ‘George,’ at Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown, during April 2019.
