Fisheries worker hacked to death
A man was hacked to death by a co-worker last evening as a feud among workers at the Pritipaul Singh Investments (PSI) fisheries complex, on the East Bank of Demerara, turned deadly.
Mark Solomon, called “Taunty,” 36, of Non Pareil Street, Albouystown, died before reaching the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) with wounds that included a slit throat. His attacker, identified as Sheldon Bowen, called “Muslim,” 36, of Water Street, Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara, was up to press time last night receiving medical attention at the GPH for injuries he sustained during the attack, as Solomon tried to defend himself. One of Bowen’s fingers was severed and he had knife wounds on both arms.
