Four days after being shot in the head, 30-year-old Terrence Plummer has lapsed into a coma and remains in a critical condition.
Plummer of North Sophia was shot in front of the Imperial Chinese Restaurant located along Sheriff Street on Sunday. He lies almost motionless on his bed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Public Hospital. His only link to this world continues to be the life-support machine to which he is attached.
Relatives told this newspaper last evening that as long as Plummer remains in a coma doctors will not be able to perform surgery on him.
“He nah getting better…he still deh de same way…we nah know what more to do,” Plummer’s brother Suresh said.
An x-ray conducted early Monday morning revealed that Plummer had sustained severe brain damage. Meanwhile, no further arrests have been made. Sukraj had told this newspaper on Monday that two men were arrested on the night of the incident and taken to the police station but were later released.
Police, in a press release had stated that Plummer and two other men were drinking in front of the restaurant when two men, one of whom was armed with a gun, approached the group.
The armed man placed the firearm to Plummer’s head and discharged a round and as the wounded man fell to the ground, the bandit took away his jewellery, the police said. His accomplice then took away a cell phone and they escaped.
