(CNS) Updated-corrected details: Police have now confirmed that the man who was shot and killed close to the Mango Tree  on Shedden Road following a shooting Friday night was Anthony James Connor from George Town. The third murder in Grand Cayman in less than a month occurred around 8:45 Friday evening in George Town. Emergency services and police were sent to the scene where the 32-year-old victim had received a single gunshot wound. He was taken to the George Town hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The junction of Crewe Road, Shedden Road and Dorcy Drive Round, by the NAPA auto shop, was closed through the night as police began their third murder investigation of the year, which also appears to be gang-related.

The police have not yet given any details of how the man was shot or any descriptions of the gunman or men or any vehicles spotted leaving the scene. A major incident room has been opened at the George Town Police Station. Telephone number is 925-7240.

The killing comes on the heels of the murder of Earl Hart (22), who was a witness in a 2011 murder case and was shot at his home in Marina Drive, Prospect, on 3 October. Irvin Garlon Bush (52) was shot and killed as he entered his home on 15 September in Daisy Lane, West Bay. Bush was the father of Robert Mackford Bush, who was also murdered in 2011 in a gang-related shooting.

Detective Inspector Kathy Marshall, the lead investigator in this case, is appealing to anyone who may have information or observed anything suspicious last night in the Mango Tree area of Crewe Road to please call the police hotline at 9497777 or Crime stoppers at 800 TIPS (8477).
