Former Athlete Accidentally Shot And Killed By Police

Georgetown (INews Guyana):  A 22-year old Guyanese man was on Friday evening killed, after he was hit by a ‘stray bullet’ allegedly fired from a police gun, during a high- speed chase in Georgetown on Friday evening.

Dead is Dameon Belgrave, a former national athlete.

Eyewitnesses said about 9:40PM Belgrave, who was to celebrate his 23 Birthday on Saturday, was having a pre-birthday “lime” with friends outside the White Castle Fish Shop, a popular night spot at Lime and Hadfield street, when he was hit by a ‘stray Bullet’ as police were involved in a high-speed chase with another car.

The youth, a certified HIV/AIDS counselor was hit under the arm while sitting on a car outside the night spot.

One of the dead man’s friend who was out with him at the time, told reporters that Belgrave was part of a group of youngsters when they heard two shots fired.

“My friend was sitting on the car and the guy was standing in front of me and we just heard the first shot so when I heard the first shot I saw him drop so I went forward to see what happened and then I heard another shot and then I turned around,” said Omeni Sobers, adding that “What is amazing about the whole thing is that he was right in front of us- a normal person having a normal conversation and shots just rang out and later on we heard he is dead.”

This shooting comes just over three weeks after police shot and killed a 17-year old in Agricola, East Bank Demerara, for which three ranks are charged.

However two of the shooters of that teen have since disappeared and wanted bulletins were issued for them.

Police are still to issue an official statement on Friday’s shooting, however a senior investigator said and investigation will be launched shortly.
