Guyhoc man in hospital after being shot, dumped in Sophia

At about 1910h. last night, police say that Devon Chung of Guyhoc Park, Georgetown, was in conversation with another man at D’Urban Street and Cemetery Road, Georgetown, when two men armed with firearms approached and held them up.

The man with Chung was placed to lie on the ground and his licensed pistol and ammunition taken away and Chung was forced into a waiting motor car. He was taken into Sophia where he was shot to his chest and back and thrown out of the vehicle and the perpetrators escaped. The motor vehicle was found overboard in a trench in the area.

Chung was taken to a hospital where he has been admitted for medical treatment, police say.

Investigations being conducted led to a search on a house at South Sophia where a .32 round was found. A man and a woman have been arrested and are in police custody assisting with the investigations, police added.
