(CMR) Shortly after 8:00 pm we received word that there was a shooting incident in the parking lot of local restaurant Welly's.
Police responded immediately to the scene and had the street cornered off as they began their investigations.
Shortly thereafter we received confirmation that a 59-year-old bus driver from Crewe Road was shot twice in the abdomen and taken to the hospital. The assailants have reported gotten away on foot.
Reports are that at this time he is alive. Whilst CMR is aware of his identity we will not be publishing it at this time.
One eyewitness posted the following on Facebook:
This is a developing story and we invite you to check back on this post periodically as we provide updates here.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is expected to make a statement shortly.
