Festival City man robbed, shot

A 22-year-old man has been hospitalised after he sustained two gunshot wounds during a robbery on Wednesday night.
The injured man has been identified as Ruben Hopkinson of Festival City, Georgetown. According to reports around 21:30h, the young man was riding a bicycle along Eden Street, Tucville, Georgetown, when he was attacked by two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun.
The perpetrators demanded his jewellery, but Hopkinson resisted, and as a result, he was shot to his left foot and buttock.
The men eventually took the 22-year-old’s jewellery valued at some $240,000 and made good their escape. Hopkinson has since been admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital and is said to be in a stable condition. Meanwhile, investigations have been launched into the incident. No arrests have been made.
