Belizean Law Student Shot in Guyana

Glenfield Dennison

A Belizean law student is clinging to life tonight after being shot to the chest and arm in Georgetown, Guyana on Thursday night.  Thirty-one-year-old Glenfield Dennison, a resident of Cummings Lodge at the University of Guyana, was injured sometime around nine o’clock Guyanese time, while standing on the roadside near his home.  A newspaper report claims that he was returning home from dropping off his girlfriend when he was attacked. Dennison has since been admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he has undergone surgery and is in an induced coma.  Investigators have ruled out robbery as the cause of the shooting. News Five attempted to get a comment from Dennison’s family earlier today; however, they declined on the grounds that they have very little information on what transpired overnight. The family is tonight appealing on social media for assistance to have his mother travel to Guyana to be with her son at this difficult time.  Dennison is the second Belizean to fall victim to gun violence in Guyana in recent years.  Orthopedic technician Emil Mendez was critically injured in December 2014 during an armed robbery.
