Jessemy added that the police are awaiting a post-mortem report before sending the file for advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions. The post mortem is scheduled for this week.

Verwayne, called “Bullet,” 36, a father of four who lived at Lot 710 Block ‘8’ Tuschen Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo, was shot as a result of remarks that he and others were accused of making about the shooter’s daughter, the police had said.

The men are employed by the MMC security firm.

Stephens, of La Penitence, Georgetown, remains in police custody and is likely to face charges.
