Investigators believe that the shooting to death of 20-year-old Patrick Fraser at Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara (EBD) late last night was a planned execution.
The young man was shot twice while imbibing with friends in an abandoned yard, known as the “drug yard” at Bagotstown.
Fraser of Republic Park, EBD, died at the Diamond Hospital.
This morning, a police source said that robbery has been ruled out as investigators have received information suggesting that the young man was executed.
“We have interviewed his friends who were with him last night and persons who reside close to the scene and we got some lead information,” the source said.
The Guyana Standard has been informed that the ranks are now hunting for two suspects in the shooting.
The police recovered a.32 spent shell, one warhead, a pair of slippers and a white cap at the crime scene.
Investigation is ongoing.
