Investigators in Berbice are searching for “a known character” after several gunshots rang out at Islington Village in New Amsterdam, injuring a farmer.
According to the police, the 45-year-old victim, Fenton Belle, a cattle farmer was standing in his yard at about 19:35hrs when a hail of gunshots rang out. One of the bullets grazed the man on the left side of his neck and he was taken to the public hospital where he was treated and sent away.
An eastern glass window was shattered and four indentations of suspected gunshots were seen on the concrete wall of the said eastern side of his house. The man had just parted the company of a policeman whom he was having a conversation with when the incident occurred. An investigation is in progress.
