Grieving relatives t Abdool Salim’s home.

An Electrical Engineer at Edward B. Beharry Group of Companies was early Sunday morning gunned down outside his Prashad Nagar home moments after exiting a car.

Neighbours, relatives and police sources said Abdool Salim,24, was shot several times as he ran away from his attackers who were on cycles.

The incident occurred on Delhi Street, Prashad Nagar, Georgetown about 4 AM.

While robbery appeared to be the motive, his cellular phone and wallet with a few hundred dollars were not taken away.

From all accounts, he coincidentally exited his vehicle at the same time the perpetrators were passing. As he attempted to flee and seek cover behind a nearby vehicle, several shots were discharged.

Salim recently graduated from the University of Guyana.

When reporters arrived on the scene, several relatives and family members were in a state of shock and anguish. 

Investigators interviewed a number of them as well as a neighbor in front of whose business the man slumped and died. {mp3remote}{/mp3remote}
