There have been multiple reports of shooting in Nevis last night, August 15.
According to several sources, shots were fired in the Paradise Estate area just before midnight to stop an attempted break in and robbery by approximately six men carrying large guns.
It was not immediately known if there was an exchange of fire between the gang of six and the private homeowner, but it is reported that the armed men fled the scene before police arrived.
Police are yet to confirm the incident.
The alleged incident comes days after Police revealed that gang members turned over thirty firearms and assorted ammunition to them, via a third party.
