The police in a brief statement had said that Daley’s body was found in a pool of blood with a suspected gunshot wound to his head.

While the circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear, Stabroek News was previously told that Daley might have left his home for Albouystown after someone who is known to him asked him to go to the area.

His mother, Allison Frank had said that she last saw him alive around 8 pm on September 29. Friday. She said she later retired to bed and was awakened around 2 am when someone visited her home and told her that one of her sons had been shot dead.

Frank had admitted that her son had had several brushes with the law and a pending matter engaging the court. He had sustained a gunshot wound to one of his hands in the case.

Among the armed robberies Daley was wanted in connection with is the recent attack on Guyana Revenue Authority  enforcement officer, Ariel Benjamin, who was shot on the morning of Saturday, September 23 and robbed of his service revolver.

Benjamin, 35, a resident of Cactus Street, West Ruimveldt, was shot once in his abdomen as he was about to enter his premises shortly after he arrived home around 4.30am.

Benjamin was reported to have been making his way into his home when he was accosted by a man, who was armed with a handgun and who relieved him of a pouch containing his service revolver and 17 live rounds. During the encounter, the man discharged a round that struck Benjamin in his abdomen.
