Cuyuni River robbery/murderDetectives attached to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters in Georgetown continue to grill the seven suspects who were arrested over Friday’s robbery/murder at a mining camp in the Cuyuni River, which resulted in the death of a Dominica Republic citizen.Police sources on Tuesday confirmed that the men remained in custody after they were brought out to the city on Monday.Fifty-five-year-old Pedro Pablo Rosario, a night supervisor at the mining camp located at Black Water Backdam, Cuyuni River, was shot and killed after three armed and masked bandits invaded the camp sometime around 02:00h.It was reported that Rosario was relaxing in a hammock while four other workers were on duty some distance away, when the bandits confronted the supervisor and fatally wounded him.The three suspects then went to the dredge area where they held the other workers at gunpoint and relieved them of two gold mats containing 100 ounces of gold from the sluice box before making good their escape.
The High Court trial of Riverview, Georgetown resident Morris Prince is set toGunned down: O’Riley Smallcommence before Justice Navindra Singh following the empanelment of a 12-member jury on Tuesday.The accused denied the murder indictment put forward by the State by way ofentering a not-guilty plea. It is alleged that he killed O’Riley Small on March 19, 2016.According to reports, the deceased was executed on Smyth Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown when he had reportedly entered his yard after he returned home from a night out at a popular spot. It was claimed that he was approached by a man who discharged several rounds in his direction, thus allegedly causing a multiplicity of injuries about the body.Defendant: Morris PrinceThe accused is being represented by Attorney Mark Waldron while the prosecution’s counsels include Tuanna Hardy, Abigail Gibbs and Teriq Mohammed.
Moments after attacking and robbing two foreign nationals in Georgetown on Sunday morning, two perpetrators were nabbed by Police who gave chase.The cutlass-wielding duo had relieved the Spanish-speaking nationals of their cellular phones along with important documents.However, while trying to escape, the two suspects were pursued by ranks of the Guyana Police Force (GPF), who were on bicycles and foot. After a lengthy chase, the two men were eventually apprehended.Reports are that around 09:50h at Longden Street, Georgetown, the two foreigners were walking when they were confronted by the bandits who executed the robbery.According to the police, during the pursuit, one of the suspects aggressively attacked an armed rank with the cutlass he had in his possession.The suspect reportedly fired several chops in the policeman’s direction but was unsuccessful in harming the cop. As a result, the officer who had repeatedly warned the man to put down his weapon discharged a warning shot in the air from his service revolver.The two men were taken to the police station where they remain in Police custody pending investigations. The cutlasses have also been retrieved and were lodged at the police station as well.Meanwhile, the stolen items were not recovered.
2 WhoScored.com assess Leroy Sane’s potential move to Manchester City Interest in Schalke’s Leroy Sane is high and Man City are said to be the club closing in on his signature. Here, WhoScored.com run the rule on the 20-year-old… Germany’s 2-0 semi final defeat to France at Euro 2016 meant Die Mannschaft failed to become the third team in history to hold both the World Cup and European Championship at the same time. That hasn’t stopped Joachim Low from staying on as Germany head coach, with the 56-year-old confirming his intention to remain in charge for the 2018 World Cup. Fans will certainly hope that youngster Leroy Sane can play a more prominent role for the national team in two years’ time in Russia.The 20-year-old was restricted to just 11 minutes of action at Euro 2016, coming on as a late substitute as Germany chased the game before their exit from the competition at the penultimate hurdle. A WhoScored.com rating of 5.95 in the defeat to France may make for disappointing reading, but it was somewhat unfair for Loew to put so much pressure on a player so young to drag Germany from two goals down to victory.Despite a lack of action in France, though, interest in Sane remains high. Manchester City are leading the race to secure the services of the youngster, with head coach Pep Guardiola thought to be big fan of the talented wide man. While Barcelona and Bayern Munich have each pondered a move for the German in the past, Sane remains high on City’s wish list as the Citizens strive to re-establish themselves as England’s top team.Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito have already secured their switch to the Etihad Stadium and, while Guardiola is eager to improve the defence before the new season gets underway, Sane supposedly remains one of the club’s top priorities this summer, and for good reason. While far from the finished product, Sane proved just how effective a performer he already is for a disappointing Schalke side last term. 2 Only Dele Alli (19), Ousmane Dembele (17) and Anthony Martial (16) were directly involved in more goals than Sane (14) of all players aged 21 or under in Europe’s top five leagues last season. Schalke are understandably keen to retain his services, with City forced to spend big for a player who is not only ready for regular first team action, but has significant scope to improve.Given Guardiola’s track record with improving young players and Sane’s immense potential, City would be landing themselves a winger who has the capacity to become one of the best in his position on the continent. Indeed, his ability to run with the ball is perhaps his strongest asset, with an average of 2.8 successful dribbles per game the fifth best in the Bundesliga last term, matching his statistically calculated WhoScored.com strength of ‘dribbling’.Yet as his goal return suggests – only Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (12) scored more league goals than Sane (8) of all Schalke players last term – the youngster doesn’t just dribble for the sake of it. There is an end game to the wideman’s approach, while he’s evidently confident in his ability having averaged the second most shots per Bundesliga match (2.1) of all Schalke players last term.Interest in his signature is understandably high, but Guardiola will hope his influence can push a deal for Sane to move to City over the line before the Premier League returns next month. The City boss showed a preference for wide players during his time as Bayern boss, with Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman both starring in their Bundesliga title win last term.With Raheem Sterling underwhelming and Jesus Navas struggling to find his best form, it’s of little shock that Guardiola has identified the wide positions as areas for improvement. In Sane, the City boss would have a wideman capable of stepping straight into the starting XI, who in all likelihood will realise his potential under Guardiola.For more stats on Leroy Sane, click here to view his WhoScored.com player page

One Border Security Force (BSF) jawan and four civilians were killed in 11-hour continuous firing and shelling by Pakistani troops on the International Border (IB) in Jammu on Friday, a day ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kashmir.3 militants shot deadThree militants were shot dead by the Army in the Valley, the first time since it halted operations two days ago as part of the Centre’s Ramzan ceasefire.An official said Pakistan violated ceasefire around 1 a.m. and continued shelling and firing on the BSF posts and the local population along the IB in Jammu’s Arnia and R.S. Pura till late noon on Friday. The Indian troops “retaliated in equal measure.”“Two BSF jawans were wounded at Arnia’s Jabowal. Later, constable Sita Ram succumbed to his injuries,” said the official.Intense mortar shelling killed Jagmohan, 45, and Satpal, 60, in Arnia’s Treva village and a couple, Tarsem Lal, 52, and Manjeet Kaur, 45, in R.S. Pura.“These civilians were either on the mobile, walking on the road or engaged in routine work when they were hit by shells,” said the district officials. Nine civilians were also injured. The shelling forced border villagers to shift to safer places. The Jammu border had been comparatively peaceful since March this year.‘Disrespect to Ramzan’“Border firing is a cause of pain and worry. Sad while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan. Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month. Pakistan will have to reciprocate. Violence is a zero sum game,” said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, while offering condolences to the victim families. Meanwhile, a spokesman of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) claimed four civilians were killed in Sialkot.A senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader said the party hoped that Mr. Modi “will take the Ramzan initiative further and open the door for serious dialogue with both Pakistan and internal stakeholders.”An Army official told news agency GNS in Srinagar that three militants were killed in a gunfight at Handwara’s Brinjal forest in Kupwara district. “Soldiers of 15 Rashtriya Rifles intercepted the group of militants, believed to be infiltrators, adjacent to Shahnagar Jat Gali. The group opened fire. In retaliation, three infiltrators were gunned down,” the Army said. The Army had made it clear it “will retaliate in case it is attacked or civilian lives are in danger.”An exchange of fire between the Army and militants was also reported in Bandipora’s Hajin on Thursday night.A red alert has been sounded in Kashmir ahead of the Prime Minister’s visit.
