A man has confessed to the shooting death of a policeman Monday night at his home, Deputy Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud said.
Persaud said the accused was also picked out during an identification parade in connection with the gunning down of Constable 19406 Michael Cumberbatch during an argument.
“Investigations have revealed that Michael Cumberbatch was at home, when he was confronted by the perpetrator enquiring about one ‘Quacy’. An argument ensued, during which he was shot to his chest,” the Guyana Police Force spokesman said in a statement.
The Police Chief of Criminal Investigations said the accused man would be arraigned on Wednesday.
