Police yet to seek advice in Tucville shooting

first_imgThe Guyana Police Force is yet to seek advice on whether to institute charges against the Tucville, Georgetown, man who opened fire on a car that pulled up in front of his gate, killing one person and injuring another.Speaking with Guyana Times on Thursday, acting Crime Chief Hugh Jessemy explained that the investigation in the matter is ongoing and that the Police are awaiting the results of the post-mortem examination before they seek advice on whether to charge the suspect.Dead: Colin Malcolm PerrieraMeanwhile, the woman who was also injured in the shooting is still hospitalised. On Tuesday, sometime around 21:00h, 24-year-old Colin Perriera of Barr Street, Kitty, was in a motor car which was being driven by his colleague, Gailall Chacon, 20, of Port Kaituma, when they drove onto the bridge of a Tucville house in an attempt to reverse.However, as they were about to reverse off of the bridge, the car was riddled with bullets by the owner of the property, causing Perriera to sustain three gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen while Chacon was shot to her abdomen.Based on reports received, the shooter, who has since been taken into Police custody, allegedly claimed that he thought the occupants of the heavily tinted car were going to commit a robbery on his property; hence he opened fire on the vehicle.The shooter told investigators that he was in the yard when he saw the vehicle and whipped out his firearm and discharged several rounds as the car drove onto his bridge.However, it was reported that Perriera managed to exit the car and ran to safety but the businessman kept discharging rounds at him. He eventually collapsed in front of a house a short distance away.A teenager, who was standing where the man collapsed, explained that after the man dropped to the roadway, he called out for help and told them that someone else was also shot.“He said that he was shot so we called 911 but like after 20 minutes a Police vehicle pull up and they take them to the hospital… he was still alive when the vehicle left but they pronounce he dead at the hospital”.According to the teen, while waiting for the Police, several persons went to the car where they saw the young lady lying in a pool of blood. She too was rushed to the hospital where she remains a patient.last_img read more

‘CDC Not a Factor in Bassa’

first_imgSenators Lawrence and Weah displaying uniformity after a session this year Sen. Lawrence claims CDC pulled 25 percent of Liberty Party crowdGrand Bassa County Senator and Liberty Party (LP) stalwart Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence has said the recent opposition Coalition for Democratic Change’s (CDC) visit to Buchanan will not change the resolve of Bassonians to overwhelmingly support Cllr. Charles Brumskine and his vice standard bearer, Harrison Karnwea  at next week’s polls.Sen. Lawrence, in an interview with this newspaper yesterday, said that as a matter of fact, “the CDC is not a factor in Bassa as far as this election goes; and if there is any, it is minimal. My party is sure of taking 125,000 of the over 140,000 registered voters in the county.”Thousands of CDC partisans stormed Buchanan last Saturday to celebrate the 51st birthday of standard bearer Senator George Weah which, according to reports, was characterized by merry-making coupled with political speeches.However, Sen. Lawrence, who chairs the Senate Committee on Post and Telecommunications, said the crowd the CDC pulled were partisans who followed Sen. Weah from Monrovia and neighboring areas, and former supporters of Representative Gabriel Smith who are now pledging allegiance to CDC representative candidate Matthew Joe, a former Liberty partisan who abandoned the LP when he was not nominated at the party’s primary.Sen. Lawrence clarified that although CDC will receive support at the district level elections, “majority of those voters will, as a matter of the party’s tradition, vote for Cllr. Brumskine in the presidential race.”As in Grand Bassa, Sen. Lawrence said Liberty Party received a similar overwhelming endorsement from partisans in neighboring River Cess County.Speaking on the chances of Rep. Gabriel Smith returning to the Capitol, Lawrence said most Liberty partisans are finding it difficult to support Smith, who has been on the Hill for 18 years.Meanwhile, Sen. Lawrence described the turnout during the recent Liberty Party Grand Bassa County launch in Buchanan as the largest since 2005, and that unlike those two electoral periods (2005 and 2011) when the party won the county, the voters are definite in their decision to help their kinsman for the third time.With respect to the LP’s chances of capturing the  refurbished Executive Mansion, Sen. Lawrence said that her party is going all out to make it to the second round, “because the final stage is going to be a fight to the finish line.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Germany need big changes, says Loew after World Cup crash

first_img0Shares0000Germany head coach Joachim Loew shoulders the blame and says radical changes are needed after Germany’s World Cup debacle. © AFP / Daniel ROLANDFRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, Jun 28 – Germany’s coach Joachim Loew Thursday acknowledged that far-reaching changes were needed after the Mannschaft’s shock exit from the World Cup, adding that he needs some time to consider his future with the team.“The Mannschaft did not demonstrate what it can usually do,” he said at Frankfurt airport as the humiliated team arrived home after finishing at the bottom of the table in the group stages. “As coach, I bear the responsibility and must of course ask myself why we didn’t succeed. That will require a bit of time, and we will hold talks about it,” he added.But the coach stressed that “with the elimination, with the deep disappointment that we have experienced, we now need to think about which are the correct measures to take”.“We need far-reaching measures, we need clear changes. We’ll need to talk about how we’ll do that,” he added.After 12 golden years in charge crowned by the 2014 World Cup win in Brazil, Loew is under fire as a dismayed Germany question if he has placed his faith in too many former stars past their prime.The daiy Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said only Loew’s departure could give Germany the “new start” it needed.German Football Association chief Reinhard Grindel said the sports management would put forward their analysis of the disastrous World Cup campaign to federation chiefs in the coming week.“Then I would also expect the coach to comment about his future,” said Grindel.The DFB extended Loew’s contract as Germany head coach until 2022 just before the World Cup kicked off, and Grindel had previously stated his job was safe regardless of how Germany perform at the tournament.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Sarri on the brink as Pogba fires United into last eight

first_imgChelsea’s lacklustre fifth round exit — their first FA Cup defeat since the 2017 final — was another painful blow for Sarri, who is facing a fight to save his job following a dismal debut season.Chelsea suffered their heaviest defeat for 28 years when they were thrashed 6-0 at Manchester City earlier this month, an indignity that came just weeks after a humiliating 4-0 loss at Bournemouth.Amid claims Sarri has lost the support of his players, the former Napoli boss watched ashen-faced as Chelsea collapsed again for a fifth defeat in their last 10 games.Sarri was subjected to chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” and “you’re getting sacked in the morning” from frustrated Chelsea fans, who called for their former star Frank Lampard, now in charge of Derby, to replace the Italian.It was the worst possible start to a defining period for Sarri, whose stubborn tactics and dubious man-management have come under intense scrutiny.Chelsea, currently outside the Premier League’s top four, return to action against Malmo in the Europa League last 32 second leg holding a 2-1 lead on Thursday.Assuming he hasn’t been axed by demanding Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich before then, a shock defeat against Malmo would be catastrophic for Sarri ahead of next Sunday’s League Cup Final date with Manchester City.Chelsea’s Jorginho vies for the ball with Manchester United’s Juan mata during their FA Cup fifth round clash at the Stamford Bridge on February 19, 2019United are through to the last eight for a fifth consecutive season as they look to win the FA Cup for a record-equalling 13th time and first since 2016.Ending United’s nine-game winless run at Chelsea was another feather in Solskjaer’s cap as his team bounced back from last week’s Champions League last 16 first leg loss to Paris Saint-Germain.Solskjaer went unbeaten in his first 11 games and the interim boss showed his tactical skills by out-witting Sarri with his switch to a midfield diamond formation.– Fatal flaws –Even Solskjaer’s risky decision to select reserve goalkeeper Sergio Romero in place of David De Gea paid off.In a frantic opening, Romero was called into action when David Luiz drilled a dipping free-kick over the United wall.Romero kept out Luiz’s effort and scrambled to his feet to save Pedro’s powerful shot from the rebound.Gonzalo Higuain should have opened the scoring from Cesar Azpilicueta’s teasing cross, but the Argentine striker headed wide.Those misses proved fatal for Chelsea, whose early pressure was rendered irrelevant by another lapse of concentration in the 31st minute.Mata picked out Pogba on the left wing and the United midfielder, unchecked by the slow-to-react Antonio Rudiger, unfurled a sublime cross that looped towards the far post.Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford in action during the FA Cup fifth round clash against Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge on February 19, 2019Herrera timed his run perfectly to meet Pogba’s delivery in stride and Marcos Alonso fatally lost his man as the Spanish midfielder planted a close-range header past Kepa Arrizabalaga for his first goal since December.Pogba was only just getting warmed up and he single-handedly ripped Chelsea part to double United’s lead on the stroke of half-time.Playing an incisive pass down the right flank to Rashford, Pogba surged into the Chelsea area and muscled his way above Azpilicueta to meet his team-mate’s pin-point cross with a diving header that Kepa couldn’t keep out.It was the 15th goal Pogba has been directly involved since Solskjaer took charge, underlined his renaissance since the sacking of his nemesis Jose Mourinho.Nothing was going Sarri’s way and United’s Nemanja Matic, already booked, avoided a red card after tripping N’Golo Kante.Even Eden Hazard, marked out of the game for long periods, couldn’t rescue the beleaguered Sarri as he found a sliver of space, only to see his shot deflected over by Victor Lindelof as Chelsea succumbed tamely.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku celebrating Pogba’s goalLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 19 – Paul Pogba drove Manchester United into the FA Cup quarter-finals and pushed Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri closer to the sack as the troubled holders crashed to a 2-0 defeat on Monday.Pogba set up United’s opening goal for Ander Herrera with a majestic cross and the France star added the second himself as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side produced a commanding display at Stamford Bridge.last_img read more

GARDAÍ PROBE €500,000 ARSON ATTACK ON FAMILY FARM

first_imgTractors were destroyed in the attackGARDAÍ in Donegal have confirmed they are investigating an arson attack on a family farm which caused up to half a million euro worth of damage.The Dooher family farm just outside Lifford was targeted just before midnight on Monday, gardaí say.It’s understood petrol bombs may have been used in the vicious attack on farm buildings which destroyed them and ruined two tractors, a bailer, a mower and other equipment. The first crop of silage from the 500-acre farm was also destroyed.All the buildings will have to be replaced.Forensic experts have spent the past two days examining the scene of the incident, which is one of the worst attacks of its kind in the county.Farmer Charlie Dooher described the attack as devastating. But he has praised local farmers and a tractor dealer who have provided him with equipment so he can continue to work on his grain and beef cattle farm.“The support of local people has been incredible,” said Mr Dooher.“This has been a terrible experience for me and my family and the support of other people has been incredible.” GARDAÍ PROBE €500,000 ARSON ATTACK ON FAMILY FARM was last modified: July 7th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arsondonegalfarmLiffordlast_img read more
