The badly injured Osborne was pulled from the car minutes later and rushed to the Georgetown Hospital where he died while receiving treatment.
Osborne was said to be an associate of Ricardo Rodrigues who was slain while sitting outside the ‘Pit Stop Restaurant and Bar’ in the compound of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club headquarters at Albert Street, Thomas Lands.
Today’s killing also came a few days after Canadian Jean Le Blanc, who was shot during the attack on Rodrigues, died mysteriously at the Georgetown Hospital. Le Blanc was said to be recovering from a gunshot wound he received.
Although police have questioned several persons, no one has so far been arrested.
Investigators are convinced that Osborne’s killing is linked to that of Rodrigues and Le Blanc.
Osborne is well known to the police, having been arrested in 2004 along with two other men with a quantity of arms and ammunition in the village of Buxton on the East Coast of Demerara. (Below: Osborne’s bullet-riddled car)
