A man was shot dead when at least two gunmen invaded his shop at Oronoque, Port Kaituma, Region One just after 10 pm last night in what appeared to be a robbery. The dead man has been identified as John Jeffrey.

Residents reported hearing two gunshots and then they saw two men running away from the shop on foot. Jeffrey’s brother and some residents pursued the men, but they escaped. It is not clear what the gunmen took from the shop, if anything.

The police are on the scene investigating.
