Investigators said they arrested a 38-year old man from Ketley Street, Charlestown in connection with the early Friday morning gunning down of a 27-year old Michael Payne that apparently stemmed from an altercation late Thursday night.
Police have so far found out that two men, including the man with whom Payne had the argument, went and invaded the the man’s residence at 85 La Penitence Street, Albouystown where they shot him several times at about 6:30 AM.
“They allegedly kicked down his door, entered the house and fought with Payne. During the process, several loud explosions were heard, after which the suspects fled and Payne was discovered with several suspected gunshot wounds to his head, chest and upper left arm,” the Guyana Police Force said in a statement.
Payne was pronounced dead on arrival.
The body is presently at the Lyken’s Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem.
