Execution in hotel yard…

Kaieteur News: "Businessman Intaz Roopnarine would almost certainly have escaped Thursday’s execution-style attack had he heeded repeated warnings from a security guard that a suspicious character was lurking outside the Cool Breeze Hotel.
Instead, Roopnarine reportedly drew his firearm, said that he was the “baddest man around”. He was walking through the hotel gate when a tall, slim gunman confronted him, chased the 38-year-old businessman to the back of the hotel compound and then shot him dead. Videos show that Roopnarine, despite having his weapon drawn, did not even try to defend himself."
