Store owner shoots burglar

A suspected burglar was Wednesday night shot to his buttocks in a store on Charlotte Street, Georgetown.

He has been identified as 35-year old Jermaine of ‘D’ Field, Sophia.  He has been hospitalised under guard at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.

The Guyana Police Force said in a statement that  he allegedly broke into the Lisa General Store, Charlotte Street, Georgetown, and during a confrontation with the owner, who is a licensed firearm holder, he was shot.

    I remember a story book in Primary school. The man clap a shot in the seat of his pants according to the story.

    Gt: “and during a confrontation with the owner,”……self- defence on the part of the owner..!!!

      As a man on the street I want to agree with you but I must look also at the technicalities and how it can affect this case in a court of law.
      As I said before it would be interesting to have some legal authority educate us for we are seeing these “confrontations” daily.

    Yes, only use guns with ‘reasonable’ force for protection.

      That’s the essence of the law, my friend. Call it being just, call it being stupid, such is the law.
