A passer-by found the body of a man with gunshot wounds on the roadside near a cemetery in Fyzabad on Thursday.

Dead is fisherman Ronnie “Runaway” Ramsawak, who lived alone at Bay Road.

South Western Division police got a call about a body near Timital Cemetery at San Francique Road, Massahood Junction. Officers including ASP Mathura, Insp Corrie, Sgt Jones and Cpls Sookoo and Seecharan cordoned off the area.

The police were told three gunshots were heard shortly after 10 am.
