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.
