In the Berbice area, a bandit was shot dead by one of his accomplices during a robbery early yesterday morning in the edinburg village.
The dead bandit has been identified as Odan Sunil Lallbeharry of east Canje, Berbice.
According to reports, Lallbeharry and 4 other bandits barged into the home of a businessman, held him and family at gunpoint and robbed them of a large sum of money and jewellery, while unleashing a beating on them at the same time.
As they were escaping, the bandits reportedly fired off several gunshots.
It is believed that it was during that incident that Lallbeharry was hit with a bullet fired by one of his accomplices.
He was left sprawled on the bridge leading into the businessman’s yard and was still alive when police arrived on the scene.
Police sources said that before he passed away, the man shared information about the other bandits.
