(CMR) Police are investigating after a man showed up at the Cayman Islands Hospital on Thursday evening, 20 April, with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the foot.
CMR sources have revealed the injured man is Yannick McLaughlin and said he was shot after a gun he was carrying went off. He has also been implicated in several robberies, a source told CMR.
