The Guyana Police Force has announced that a probe has been launched into the murder of a 24-year-old Bagotstown man, who was reportedly wanted for the murder of a Providence teenager.
According to a police report, the dead wanted man who has been identified as Jermaine Simon of Norton Street, Bagotstown, was riding a bicycle in the village when a man rushed out from his yard and discharged a shot at Simon. The incident occurred around 8:30pm on Tuesday.
