Construction worker, 18, shot a week after Phagwah Day argument


Aydil Francis, an 18-year-old Construction Worker from South Sophia, was shot Tuesday night by a man with whom he argued on Phagwah Day, March 25.

Police Headquarters said the incident occurred around 20:30 hrs at Guyhoc, Georgetown. The suspect, called ‘Preggo’ (only name available), is said to be from Plum Park, Sophia.

Francis claimed that he had known the suspect for several years, but they were not friends.

On Phagwah Day, they both engaged in a heated argument. At about 20:30 hrs last night, Francis claimed that he was sitting at a shop next to the ‘black and white’ bridge in Guyhoc when he was approached by the suspect, who was riding a motorcycle at the time.

The suspect whipped out a handgun from the waist of his pants and fired a single shot in Francis’ direction, which hit him in his lower left foot.

The suspect then rode off on his motorcycle and made good his escape. Francis was rushed to the GPHC by public-spirited citizens, where he is a patient undergoing treatment for a gunshot injury. His condition is listed as stable.

Investigations are ongoing.
