Efforts by this newspaper to contact Davis’ relatives yesterday for a comment were futile as on two visits to his residence no one was at home.

Stabroek News understands that Davis was killed after the businessman turned up at his home in the company of his wife and another woman.

Davis went downstairs to speak to the occupants of the vehicle and it was shortly after this that gunshots were heard. Sources also related to Stabroek News that after Davis was shot, he fell on the businessman’s car’s bonnet. The businessman then shoved him off the car onto his bridge and drove away.

The Eccles Housing Scheme man died at the Georgetown Hospital where he was rushed.  He had resided alone in the upper flat of the two-storey building and his close relatives are said to be abroad. Stabroek News was also told that he is the owner of a bike shop and a boutique and brought bikes from Suriname.
