(CMR) Police have confirmed that they are investigating at least three separate shooting incidents in West Bay overnight. CMR understands that there were two in George Town and one in West Bay.
The first incident occurred shortly before 1:10 am today 11 October the RCIPS Firearms Response Unit responded to a 911-Emergency dispatch to a report of shots being fired in the area of Finch Drive, West Bay. When officers arrived at the location, two unattended vehicles were found with what appeared to be bullet holes. One of the vehicle's petrol tanks was damaged and the Fire Services responded and safely prevented any further damage to the vehicle or threat to public safety.
Shortly thereafter, two subsequent reports of shots fired at two separate locations in George Town were received and responded to by the police. The second incident occurred just after 1:50 am at Pedestrian Plaza on Shedden Road in the vicinity of Printers Way.
The third incident was reported to the police just before 2:15 am and took place at The Strand off Canal Point Road. Both scenes were held by the police and certain articles of evidence were collected by the Crime Scene Investigating Officer processing the scenes.
The alleged person or persons involved in both shootings had left the scenes before the police arrived. Police believe these incidents are contained to a specific group of individuals. There is a possibility these incidents may be linked, however, we are keeping an open mind at this early stage of the investigation.
Investigations into these incidents are underway and the police are appealing to anyone with information that might assist in these investigations to call the Major Incident Room at 649-2930.
