A North Ruimveldt businessman is now hospitalised after being shot by a gunman in front of his yard yesterday morning.

Injured is Clinton Anderson, 50, of North Ruimveldt Squatting Area, who has been admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit and is in a stable condition.

According to a police press release, Anderson was attacked by two men at about 1.45am yesterday. Anderson, police said, was about to enter his yard in his vehicle when he was confronted by the two men, one of whom was armed with a firearm. The police said Anderson reversed the vehicle and attempted to drive away but during this time the armed man discharged several shots at him, hitting him in the back and right knee.

When contacted, Anderson’s wife declined to shed any light on the shooting.

However, she did confirm that her husband was hospitalised and is in a stable condition.
