No breakthrough on Mambo killing

Crime Chief Seelall Persaud says there has been no development in the Sunday shooting which claimed the life of 33-year-old Essequibo businesswoman Shelliza Basir-Lall and injured three other persons, including her husband Raymond Lall.

Police in a press release on the shooting had said that around 0020 hours on Sunday, Shelliza Lall, 33 years, of Charity, Essequibo Coast, was shot and killed by one of two men who burst into the Kitty bar.

The release said that investigations revealed that  Lall, her husband Raymond, Badatunde Nedd and Permanand Persaud were at the Mambo Bar on Barr Street when the suspects entered and discharged several rounds hitting them. The woman and her husband were taken to a private hospital where Shelliza was pronounced dead on arrival while Raymond was admitted. Persaud and Nedd were admitted to Woodlands Hospital.

Nedd has since told this newspaper that there was no time to see who or from which direction the gunshots originated. He said that when he heard the shots all he did was look for cover.
