A Tactical Services Unit police constable was gunned down at around 21:00 hrs last night, after he stepped out of his North Sophia home to speak to a man who claimed he was there to see someone.
Michael Cumberbatch, 29, of Lot 111 North Sophia, was reportedly shot twice at close range near his front door. He succumbed despite efforts to rush him to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
Kaieteur News understands that police have detained three North Sophia residents in connection with the policeman’s death. A source said that one of the suspects is a close friend of the alleged gunman. This suspect’s son is also in custody.
