As the police continue to investigate a shooting incident which occurred inside the Tower Suites’ Club Privilege on Sunday morning, it has been discovered that one of the three suspects has overstayed in Guyana. The other two are expected to be released on station bail soon. Commander of ‘A’ Division, Clifton Hicken told Stabroek News that the three suspects; two female managers and a technician remained in custody up to yesterday afternoon.
He said it has been revealed that one of the suspects does not have a work permit and has been overstaying here and this is being dealt with accordingly.
Stabroek News understands that the arrests were made following management’s alleged attempt to cover up the matter. The technician also allegedly tampered with surveillance camera footage.
Reports had revealed that around 3 am on Sunday there was an exchange of gunshots inside the club which resulted in injuries.
A victim who preferred to remain anonymous had told reporters that he was standing at the bar liming when there was a scuffle between two patrons. “Two guys had a lil scuffle, then a guy approach them and just start opening fire just suh dry”, he said.
It was during this the victim said that he was injured by a bullet which grazed his foot and he ran outside. “Me and everybody run outside and a girl tell me look me foot bleeding, then I go to the station and mek a report”, he said.
He further explained that after visiting the police station, he returned to the club on Sunday morning but by that time the area had already been cleared of the evidence. “We come back here (the club) around 6 something the morning (Sunday) but they did done clean up here already, wipe up, done get rid of all the evidence, so we didn’t get to really get any evidence on it (the shooting)”, he said.
He related that he was unable to see the face of the shooter or the other two individuals who were involved in the scuffle since the club was dark. “The light did flashing so I couldn’t see they face”, he said.
