In a statement, police said that the incident occurred around 8:50am at Lamaha Gardens, Georgetown, where Inniss was shot and injured by Oudit Seenarain of Prashad Nagar—a businessman and licensed firearm holder, whom he had attempted to rob. Investigations revealed that Seenarain was returning to his vehicle when he was approached by a man armed with a firearm who told him that it was a robbery. “Seenarain drew his firearm and both men discharged rounds at each other resulting in the perpetrator being shot to his right foot and buttocks,” police reported. Inniss, however, managed to escape on a motor cycle driven by an accomplice. Later the police were informed by public spirited persons that a man was lying on the roadway at Lamaha Gardens with suspected gunshot injuries and upon checking they discovered that it was the same man who had attacked Seenarain. A .38 Taurus revolver with two spent shells were found in his possession.Self-defense is a human right.
