Two men are in custody for the stabbing death of 20-year-old Perseverance, East Bank Demerara youth, Owen Young.
The murder took place at around 10pm on Saturday.
A police report said Young and the two suspects were involved in a heated argument when one of the suspects suddenly stabbed the youth to his neck with a knife.
The 20-year-old collapsed at the scene and was rushed to the Diamond Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
The two suspects whose names have not been released, reportedly ran from the scene after the youth collapsed. On Sunday, the two turned themselves into the Police in the presence of a lawyer.
They remain in Police custody pending the post-mortem report and charges.
