One man is currently nursing a gunshot wound to his upper body after being shot in an incident this morning, at approximately 7 a.m. in the Old Road area.
The last update received indicated that the victim was being operated on for his injuries at the Joseph N France Hospital.
Police have confirmed the incident with a brief statement which read’ “Police are currently looking into an incident at in Old Road that involved a licensed firearm holder. The victim was transported to the JNF Hospital and the circumstances are being investigated.”
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the licensed firearm holder was responding to strange noises around his property.
Credible reports also reveal that the licensed firearm holder’s property had been vandalized before.
The unsubstantiated accounts also state that while investigating the strange noises, the firearm owner opened fire, striking the victim.
Several reports, however, indicate that it was an accidental discharge and the victim was not an intended target.
We are awaiting a comprehensive report from the Police.
