41-year old Ricardo Rodrigues was killed instantly in a brazen attack which left his body mutilated and riddled with bullets. He carried a .32 pistol, but was unable to retaliate from the surprise attack and barrage of AK-47 shots.

Rodrigues, a former right-hand man of convicted drug kingpin Shaheed ‘Roger’ Khan was the sole target of the attack according to police.

In addition to “Fat Man”, police say that the following men were wounded in the gunfight:  Aubrey Henry, 35, of Alberttown, who was shot in both legs; Jamaican Michael Hutchinson, 42, was hit on his right arm and right foot and Canadian Jean Le Blanc who was shot in his right hip.

Guyanese news source, kaieteurnewsonline.com reports eyewitnesses recalled seeing two men dressed in black, firing repeatedly at Rodrigues who was sitting at a table outside the club’s Pit Stop Restaurant and Bar.

No clear motive for the killing has been established as yet but investigators are probing whether it is linked to the recent arms and ammunition find at Lethem.
