Guyana: Child shot dead by bandit during Sophia robbery

The Guyana Police Force say it is investigating the murder of 11-year-old student Anthony Cort who was reportedly shot dead by one of two bandits during a robbery earlier today.

Investigations, the police say,  reveal that the child was with his mother two houses from where he resides when two males wearing face masks and armed with handguns invaded the property belonging to a 44-year-old businesswoman.

The 11-year-old was in the upper flat of the home located at C Field Sophia in the company of others when the bandits approached the victims at the said bottom flat and held them at gunpoint. They were relieved of two cellphones valued $80,000 each, two gold bands valued $100,000, two gold finger rings valued $100,000, one gold chain valued $100,000 and $80,000 cash.

The police say that the suspects then ordered the said victims to the upper flat of the house via a northern door during which, Anthony (the deceased) was about to exit a north eastern bedroom. One of the bandits then discharged a round hitting Anthony in his left upper shoulder.
