Woman commits suicide at police station in Guyana

A 49-year-old woman committed suicide at the Brickdam Police Station in Georgetown, Guyana, following a domestic dispute.

Police said the woman employed with the Guyana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had earlier been in a confrontation with her husband, a taxi driver, and her son.

In a statement, the police said she had taken an object wrapped in a yellow cloth and hit her husband’s motorcar. The man then drove to the Brickdam Police Station to report, and the woman followed him.

Upon her arrival at the station, the woman is reported to have told her husband, “this is what you want,” before shooting herself. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Government Medical Officer Dr Narine.

“The woman, up to the time of her death, was receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital Psychiatric clinic,” the police said.

Police said the weapon used by the victim was a stun gun, which she had in her possession and used during her job as an animal inspector.

Home Affairs Minister Robeson Benn, who visited the scene, said it was a miserable situation that the police would thoroughly investigate.
