A 33-year-old miner is currently at a city hospital after he was shot during a home invasion in East La Penitence, Georgetown.
The injured man has been identified as Peter Chow, of Lot 10 Railway Embankment, Kitty.
Stabroek News was told that Chow was waiting on his girlfriend at her hairdresser at an East La Penitence address when a lone gunman invaded the house.
The gunman demanded cash and other valuables. Chow was shot and robbed of the jewellery he was wearing at the time.
A police source told Stabroek News that afterward, neighbours responded to calls for help and removed Chow and placed him in a taxi before he was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital.
