One person has confessed to the fatal shooting of moneychanger Aaron Latchman and his 19-year-old daughter Arianna, police sources have confirmed.

According to the senior rank, three persons were in custody when one of them confessed to the crime.

The assailant told police that he was paid by a Mon Repos businessman to kill the moneychanger. He further stated that his employer wanted Latchman dead over a “deal” that went bad.

On July 4, Latchman and his daughter were shot dead just as they arrived at their Better Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home. They both died at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH).

The Guyana Standard reported that the duo had just arrived home and was about to exit their car when they were confronted by the armed men.

According to the police, the shooters demanded cash the family was carrying. The older Latchman reportedly put up a fight when one of the men opened his car door, resulting in him being shot.

Both the man and his daughter were shot multiple times about the body.

It is unclear if the family was returning home from the bank. However, police suspect that someone in Georgetown might have sent the gang to rob the family since the men were around the area waiting on their victims to arrive home.
