The Police are reaching out to possible witnesses, or anyone with information in relation to a shooting incident at the Warner Park area, on the evening of December 4, as they try to crack the case. No one was hurt in the incident but it compromised the lives of several youths and a Police officer.
The appeal was made via a press release on December 7th.
According to the Police, “several juveniles were standing in the park watching a football match, around 5:30 p.m., when they were approached by a masked gunman who opened fire at them. The juveniles ran for safety and the shooter fled the scene.”
A Police officer, who was on foot patrol, gave pursuit while the assailant was fleeing the area.
The report further states that “when they got into an alley that leads to College Street Ghaut from Wellington Road, the gunman pointed what appeared to be a weapon in the direction of the Police Officer who, in response, discharged two rounds of ammunition from his firearm. The gunman managed to escape.”
