Shooters trying to settle with sex workers over drive-by attack
The persons responsible for the recent drive-by attack on four transgender persons, who were shot with pellets while standing on the street, are seeking to reach a settlement with the victims.
The perpetrators of the April 7th attack on the quartet, who were plying their trade as sex workers at the junction of King Street and North Road when they came under fire, were identified after the group made a report to police, who located the owner of the bus used in the attack.
Although police are still investigating the attack, Stabroek News was told that the young men responsible for the shooting and their parents have been speaking to the targeted workers towards reaching an amicable resolution.
A source knowledgeable about the engagement said the youths offered to come to a settlement with the workers but were refused.
