Wanted are Lennin Messiah, also called “Baby,” of Lot 3667 North Ruimveldt, Georgetown; 20-year-old Shannon Braxton Wilson of Lot 2570 Kaikan Street, North Ruimveldt, and Joel Sars also known as “Joe” of Lot 3667 North Ruimveldt.
It has been reported that multiple gunshots rang out in Austin Street, Campbellville, at about 20:07h on July 6 last, before an unidentified man was seen entering the front passenger seat of a silver-grey motor car and fleeing the scene.
After that shooting incident, Police detailed that on the day in question, the 42-year-old businessman had left his work site at Eccles, East Bank Demerara, at about 19:50h in his white Toyota Premio vehicle, PVV 8859; and as he was making his way home, he had observed a silver-grey Allion motor car trailing him.
As Khan turned into the entrance of his home and stopped his car, the suspect immediately exited the front passenger seat of the Allion with a gun in his hand, and approached Khan’s vehicle.

According to detectives, as Khan saw the armed suspect approaching his vehicle, he availed himself of his licensed pistol and discharged rounds in the suspect’s direction. Thereupon, the suspect riddled Khan’s car with bullets, before re-entering the silver-grey car, which sped off the scene.
Slumped in the driver’s seat, bleeding from wounds on his feet and hands, Khan was immediately rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was admitted. His condition was regarded as stable.

In their investigations, detectives had found 27 spent shells of .223 ammunition on the roadway, and another 13 spent shells of 9mm ammunition in Khan’s car.
They had also found Khan’s gun on the front seat of his bullet-riddled car, while bullet holes had also been found on a concrete fence, a verandah, and on the garage gate. Another car, a grey BMW owned by Khan, which was parked alongside the other car, had a hole in the right front door.
Police have since confirmed that Khan had sustained gunshot injuries to the thigh and left elbow.
Back in 2018, Khan had been charged and granted bail in relation to discharging a loaded firearm outside a popular night club on Main Street. Khan, who was 37 at that time, had appeared before Senior Magistrate Fabayo Azore, where the charge read to him had stated that on October 28, at Main Street, Georgetown, he had discharged a loaded firearm within 100 yards of a public way. Khan had denied the allegation levelled against him, and his lawyer Glenn Hanoman had been successful in making an application for him to be placed on bail.
Khan is the brother of Imran Khan, who had been slapped with an attempted murder charge following an attack on Romario Balget, called “Short Boss.
Meanwhile, anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of the three men is asked to contact the Police on telephone numbers 225-6940, 225-8196, 227-1149, 911, or at the nearest Police station.
