The relatives of murder victim Neeranjan Rajkumar believe his death was a case of mistaken identity.
Rajkumar, 47, was shot multiple times as he was walking to his Soledad Road, Claxton Bay home on Saturday.
He collapsed and died on the roadway around 6.30 p.m.
His brother, Lokash Ramnath, said, "I feel he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. My brother was a simple man, who lived a good life. He had no enemies that I know of and I can't recall him ever having an argument with anyone."
Rajkumar, an auto straightener and painter, went to Keith Trace, Claxton Bay, to visit friends and was returning home when he was killed.
Police said a car pulled up alongside him and an occupant fired several shots.
Residents contacted the police and officers discovered Rajkumar's body at the side of the road.
Rajkumar lived alone, was not married and had no children.
"I last saw my brother on Thursday (Corpus Christi) when we talk a little and I left. This is a shock to the family. He loved to jog and exercise and was a good man in the community," he said.
Rajkumar's elder sister, Kalowtie, was inconsolable.
"He usually call me and ask for food, but I didn't see him in two weeks," she said.
Police were unable to ascertain a motive for the shooting yesterday.
Homicide detectives are continuing investigations.
