The incident occurred sometime around 11:05h on Alexander Street, between Regent and Robb Streets, Georgetown.Dead is 26-year-old Mahendra Persaud, called “Amar”, of Lot 22 Good Success, Wakenaam. The man, who ran his family-owned supermarket, got married in February.Investigators at the scene following Tuesday’s shootingDead: Businessman Mahendra PersaudGuyana Times understands that Persaud was on his weekly trip to Georgetown to get goods for the business and was in the front passenger seat in the parked vehicle along with his driver on Alexander Street in front of the Torginol building, when two men road up alongside him on a CG motorcycle.As he was existing the vehicle, one of the men whom was armed demanded that he hand over the bag which contained a large sum of money; however, Persaud put up resistance. A struggle then ensued between the businessman and the bandit during which Persaud was shot.The 26-year-old fell to the ground but held on to the bag as the armed man continued his attempt to relieve him of it. At this point, a licensed firearm holder who was in the area pulled out his weapon and went to Persaud’s aid. However, the bandit saw the armed man approaching and let go of the bag, and began running.Further information revealed that as the bandit was running in the direction of Robb Street, the licensed firearm holder opened fire in his direction. There was an exchange of gunfire between the two men during which the bandit was reportedly hit. Nevertheless, the injured bandit managed to escape as his accomplice was waiting at the corners of Robb and Alexander Streets.On the other hand, as gunshots ran out, the driver of a car that was approaching the scene reportedly panicked and ran over Persaud, who was lying at the corner of the road. The injured businessman was picked up by his driver and immediately rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival (DoA).Persaud reportedly sustained three gunshot wounds, one to his neck and two others to his chest.Meanwhile, at the Georgetown Public Hospital, the young man’s aunt,Dr Koushilyia Persaud, who is a staff at the medical facility, related that she was informed of the shooting by their driver and immediately rushed to Accident and Emergency (A&E) Unit where her worst fears were confirmed.The woman said that her nephew’s parents separated, so he grew up with her and her parents. “He and his younger brother were brought up by my parents and so we are all very close… I can’t believe that he is gone… he used to come visit me every time he is in town and would bring me lunch,” the grieving woman lamented.The aunt described the 26-year-old as a friendly, non-confrontational, funny and helpful young man who just began life, having got married just two months ago.Back home in Wakenaam, the news of Persaud’s death spread, leaving relatives and friends shocked and dumbfounded. Persons began gathering at his home to extend condolences to his family. The man’s friends even blocked off the street in front of his home with motorcycles and vehicles as they mourned his untimely demise.They described him as a very independent and consoling friend who is always willing to lend a helping hand to whomever is in need. Many persons even took to social media on Persaud’s facebook page, expressing their shock and sympathy over his sudden death.According to Police reports, the bag that Persaud had in his possession was recovered and handed over to relatives. The Police also revealed in a statement that a man was seen attempting to change the number plate of the vehicle that had run over the Wakenaam businessman. He has since been arrested and told investigators that he is a mechanic who was asked to replace the number plate by the owner. The car has been impounded.The Police said they are yet to arrest the driver of the car. Nevertheless, Head of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Wendell Blanhum told Guyana Times that they are looking for an individual who is known to the Police.The Crime Chief disclosed that investigators were able to obtain CCTV footage from the area and were able to identify one of the suspects. Investigations are continuing.last_img read more

Nakumatt not worried about relegation

first_img“I am not worried at all that we might end up in relegation. We have only played 13 matches and there are 21 more games to go. We are only three points off safety and I am pretty sure things will stabilize soon,” the tactician told Capital Sport after their match against Bandari.The club started the season slow following tough financial times, but a recent takeover by city politician Francis Mureithi breathed a new lease of life and they hope his coming will aid them back up the standings.Nakumatt FC defender Eugene Ambulwa clears under pressure from Bandari’s Shabaan Kenga during their Kenyan Premier League match on April 29, 2018 in Machakos. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Despite the fact that we have finally found a sponsor, there are things that are yet to take shape. It is those small small details that are still keeping us shaken but once everything settles down, we will be okay,” the tactician noted.He added; “Since the season began, this is the only week that we have trained consistently throughout and we have been forced to do double sessions to cover up for the lost time. This cannot take effect now but later on in the season,” the tactician noted.With no mid-season break as the league starts the process of conforming its calendar to the European format, Mwangi hopes his side can start picking results early enough and build up.Their next assignment will be against Zoo Kericho on Sunday.-Bandari third-Meanwhile, Bandari strengthened their hold on third spot following the win over Nakumatt and head coach Ken Odhiambo believes it is a process of getting the team ticking.Bandari FC coach ken Odhiambo remonstrates on the touchline during their Kenyan Premier League match against Nakumatt on April 29, 2018 in Machakos. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThe dockers have picked seven points off their last three assignments and Odhiambo is pleased with the run, hoping that they maintain it till the final day of the season.“At this moment, the most important thing for us is getting the team together because we have so many new players, almost 80 percent. We are not concentrating on the position we want to finish but looking at improving how we play,” Odhiambo noted.Despite winning against Nakumatt, Odhiambo wasn’t impressed with the performance of his side but he hopes they can improve over the next few games.“We played 60pc well and despite winning I was not happy with how many things went. Our passing wasn’t very good and decision making in the final third wasn’t good as well,” the coach noted.Bandari are only two points behind second placed Mathare who raced from a goal down to draw 2-2 with leaders Gor Mahia in the late kick off at the Kenyatta Stadium on Sunday.-Kimanzi pleased-Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi gives a thumbs up during his Kenyan Premier League match against Gor Mahia on April 29, 2018 in Machakos. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHead coach Francis Kimanzi was pleased with the fighting spirit exhibited by his players especially after back to back losses and he hopes the point can inspire them back to their early season form.“If you get a point against a team you are close to on the log you appreciate. I think it is good that we have the belief. We lost against Wazito but that is a match we were robbed. This is a match we know that we got what we worked for,” the experienced coach said.He added; “It is motivating that after we drop six points on the third match you get a point, then maybe in the fourth game something better happens.”Mathare are three points behind leaders Gor Mahia who have two matches at hand. Kimanzi believes they can push to challenge for the crown though he reiterates it is not a priority to them after merely surviving relegation last term.-Matano masterstroke-In other results from this weekend, Robert Matano picked up a second consecutive win in charge of Tusker FC as the brewers beat Sony Sugar 3-2 at Ruaraka.Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano (right) confers with his assistant Charles Okore during their Kenyan Premier League match against Wazito on April 25, 2018 At Camp Toyoyo.

L.A.’s education experiment

first_imgSchool that opted out of reform is perfect `control’ campus. After a heady celebration earlier this month, at least one of the seven schools that voted on Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s reform plan will not participate. A second school will re-vote next month. Although a majority of parents and teachers at Watts’ Jordan High School endorsed joining the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, the number of teachers voting “yes” fell short of a union-negotiated deal since some declined to take part in the heavily politicized event. And dozens of Santee High School teachers were off-track and haven’t had a chance to vote. The news deflates the optimism of the Los Angeles Unified School District reform effort, but it’s not all bad. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Every experiment needs a control population to accurately gauge results. The seven middle schools and high schools chosen for the mayor’s education reform attention were picked because of their high rate of failure. Progress at the schools working with the mayor, compared with that at schools like Jordan, will tell us whether change or the status quo is the best path. last_img

Call leads police to drug factory

The officers arrested Panian and set up a safety zone around the building, Dennis said. Panian is being held in Azusa jail in lieu of $2 million bail. Bingo players at the legion post were also evacuated, said a nearby resident. Inside the warehouse, police and firefighters discovered beakers and jugs of chemicals and about 20 weapons, said Azusa Capt. Sam Gonzalez. As investigators sorted through the chemicals Tuesday, they brought out a large bag of what appeared to be ecstasy tablets and possibly a large quantity of methamphetamine, said Richard Gutierrez, a member of the Los Angeles Police Department’s drug task force LA IMPACT. Law enforcement officers from several agencies, including the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, cataloged the chemicals and materials. Police did not have a specific monetary estimate on the drugs confiscated, but said it was likely in the millions of dollars. Steve Haugan, 59, lives across the street from the warehouse. “We never saw any activity out there or anything,” Haugan said. jason.kosareff@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AZUSA – Police spent Tuesday sorting through evidence of a multimillion-dollar drug operation that yielded massive quantities of the drug ecstasy and a large cache of guns. The bust was the result of a call of a fire in the 800 block of North Loren Avenue at about 8:30p.m. Monday. Azusa police Officers Chris Franks, Louie Hernandez and Mark Walters noticed a strange smell coming from the warehouse, a small industrial building next door to American Legion Canyon City Post 180. The officers knocked on building No. 811, and Mihran Nishan Panian, 32, of Pasadena opened the door, said Azusa Lt. Paul Dennis. last_img read more
