Bus driver stabbed to death

…after upbraiding man

A family is in mourning after a night of senseless violence that ended with 31-year-old Gavin Fiffee being stabbed to death at the Stabroek Market bus park last night.

Fiffee was loading passengers onto his No. 44 Plaisance bus when a man began to urinate on the side of the bus. Stabroek News understands that Fiffee told the man to stop at which point the man became agitated asking Fiffee what he was going to do about it before pulling out a knife and stabbing Fiffee multiple times in the chest.

Fiffee was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital by a friend who drives a taxi, however he passed away due to the blood loss in the operating theatre.

Antonia Beveny, the young man’s eight-month pregnant girlfriend was in shock when she spoke to Stabroek News. She said that her boyfriend, whom she had been with for four years, was a relaxed person and she couldn’t believe this had happened.

Fiffee’s mother told Stabroek News that she was not sure if the man who stabbed her son was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She said that he was known to the area.

Fiffee had been driving a bus for six years. Friends and family gathered at the hospital by the dozens to lend their support to the family. Fiffee has two daughters from a previous relationship.
