Suspected gang member charged with attempted murder of ‘Spoil Child’
A 23-year-old member of an alleged “mob gang” was remanded to prison Tuesday for the attempted murder of former policeman Teon Allen known as ‘Spoil Child.’
Renard Caesar of Amelia’s Ward, Squatting Area, Linden appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and was not required to plead to the charge, which alleged that on October 5, 2019, at La Penitence, Georgetown, with intent to commit murder, he discharged a loaded firearm at Allen.
The father of one was represented by attorney-at-law Gordon Gilhuys who made an application for bail.
Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers objected to bail based on the nature, seriousness and penalty attached to the charge.
The court heard that Caesar is also among six men who are wanted in connection with the shooting death of Eon Williams and the attempted murder of his girlfriend 20-year-old Melita Antigua on September 28, at Linden.
The Chief Magistrate remanded Caesar to prison until October 31, 2019.
The News Room had reported that Williams was driving his car with Antigua –a teacher— in the passenger seat at about 20:15 hrs on September 28 when gunmen in another car opened fire on them.
Williams was shot multiple times as he exited the car and succumbed to his injuries while his girlfriend received gunshot wounds to her leg and back and was admitted to the Linden Hospital in a stable condition.
The gunmen are reportedly from a Cayenne-based Guyanese gang operating in Linden.
Allen, also a resident of Linden, is the cousin of Williams. The former policeman is currently on $500,000 bail for the attempted murder on Denise Grant and Tiffany McDeth, in Amelia’s Ward, on September 2, 2019.
