A HAIL of bullets meant for Office of the President member of staff, Leroy Little late Friday afternoon miraculously missed its target but sent residents of his Farmers Field, Sophia neighbourhood scurrying for cover.
Little, a television journalist, told the Guyana Chronicle it’s a miracle he’s still alive as he was standing right there in his yard when the gunmen opened fire. Noting that it was the third time for the week that he’d come under fire, Little, said he and his teenaged brother were standing in the yard, listening to a strange murmur coming from his car when he alerted him that there were two motorcycles approaching their house from the opposite ends of the street.
“My brother told me there were two motorbikes approaching, and because of the two shootings we had here during the week, we all on alert,” he said. “And once the vehicles got in front of my house here, both of the persons on the bikes opened fire.”
He said that once their mission was accomplished, the gunmen just kept on riding, shooting as they went until they were well out of sight.
Little said he is still at a loss as to who might want him dead and why. “Me ain’t get no problems with anybody,” he said, adding that he does not believe it has anything to do with his job at the Office of the President.
Thankfully, no one was injured during any of the random shootings, but the police have since recovered seven spent shells from the scene, and with the little information they’ve gathered are trying to piece together the identity of the hitmen.
