Shooting incident: Victim wanted suspect’s Iphone
Reports indicate that Thursday’s shooting incident along the Waterkant was the result of an Iphone dispute. The man who was shot three times had to be rushed to the Emergency Room. Sources told Times of Suriname that the suspect was walking through the street with his Iphone when the victim asked him to sell it to him. The suspect refused and the men started arguing. The suspect eventually pulled out a gun and the victim tried to disarm him. The suspect then hit him on the head before shooting him 3 times. The victim reportedly sustained one gunshot wound in his right thighbone. The perpetrator then fled the scene but was chased by bystanders. He reportedly aimed his gun at the people who were chasing him and fired one shot to scare them off. He then jumped in a black car and fled. Reports indicate that a wrong man was arrested after the shooting. He was released from police custody after witnesses told the police that he was not the one who had pulled the trigger.
