The man who was shot by a Rural Constable at Annandale, East Coast Demerara on Friday morning during an attempted robbery is still alive, according to the police. A press release from the Police Public Relations Department said yesterday: “The man who was shot during an attempted robbery on Friday at the home of businessman Ishwar Jeffrey at Annandale, East Coast Demerara, was seriously injured to his face and not fatally shot as was inadvertently stated in my press release on the incident on Friday. Kindly accept my sincere apologies for the misinformation.” The press release was signed by Public Relations and Press Officer Ivelaw Whittaker.

The release said the man was still to be identified.

The man was said to be one of three men who entered Jeffrey’s yard around 2 am. Rural Constable Mananno Jeffrey, who is the homeowner’s son, said he later engaged in a shootout with the man and wounded him.

The other two men managed to escape. A.38 revolver with three rounds and a spent shell were recovered in the house and another .38 revolver was recovered outside.

Mananno Jeffrey had said the intruder whom he shot was not dead when the police arrived.

The intruder was shot to the left side of his face with a 12-gauge shotgun and is currently a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
