A security guard was shot this morning after a man was seen discharging several rounds at State House.
A well-placed source told MTV News Update that the incident occurred just before 8:00h and the President’s family is safe.
However, investigators have already cordoned over the area as the investigation into the incident gets underway.
The Head of the Guyana Police Force's (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), Mark Ramotar, has committed to providing information regarding the incident when available.
This is a developing story, and more details will be provided in a subsequent report.
