Reg. 9 REO ‘accidentally’ shot woman – Police Force
The Guyana Police Force says that the Regional Executive Officer of Region Nine, Karl Singh has been released on bail after it was found that he “accidentally” shot a woman to her abdomen on July 20 at Lethem.
Singh was in custody since the incident occurred and was only placed on bail Thursday night; he is slated to return to the police station again on Friday.
The incident occurred while the two were in Singh’s vehicle.
The injured woman was identified as 25-year-old Gladys Emmanuel, a pharmacist of St. Ignatius Village, Central Rupununi. The police did not immediately get the opportunity to question the victim as a result of her condition at the hospital, but this was subsequently done.
