Two men were Saturday night shot dead and doctors were battling to save the life of a third man at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.

The incident occurred just outside the K&VC Hotel, South Road, Georgetown.

Someone, who went into the Accident and Emergency Unit, said the men’s bodies were riddled.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Seelall Persaud said the detectives were still processing the crime scene. He confirmed that a number of bandits “were killed” in a shootout with police.

Joseph was charged in December 2012 for allegedly stealing one Glock handgun from a rural constable who had attempted to arrest him for attempting to robe someone else.
