Third suspect dies after police shooting
- family wants independent autopsy
Romario Gouveia, the lone survivor of three men who allegedly engaged in a “shootout” with police on Saturday night, succumbed in hospital yesterday and family members are demanding an independent autopsy as they suspect foul play in his sudden death.
Gouveia, 19, of James Street, Albouystown died around 10:30 am in the Male Surgical Ward of the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH), where he had been transferred in stable condition after being initially admitted to the High Dependency Unit. He had sustained a single gunshot wound in the alleged confrontation in the vicinity of K&VC Hotel on South Road, where cousins Mark Anthony Joseph, 19, and Jermaine Canterbury, 21, both of Lot 19 Hogg Street, Albouys-town were fatally shot by lawmen.
