Man shot near BT bar

| 15/12/2014

(CNS): Police are investigating a shooting which occurred in Bodden Town around midnight Sunday at the end of a violent weekend.  The incident took place close to the Everglo bar when a 43-year-old man from the district was shot in his left shoulder. An RCIPS spokesperson said he was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town, where he was treated for his injuries, which are not considered life threatening. He is now in a stable condition, the police reported Monday. The shooting comes after a number of crimes in George Town over the weekend: there were two armed street robberies on Saturday night, as well as a violent stabbing and reports of a car being shot at, both in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

Police have arrested a suspect in the car shooting incident and have charged a man in connection with the stabbing but the armed street robbers remain at large.

Officers are now also looking for the Bodden Town shooter as no  arrests have been made in connection with that incident.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may have information to assist are asked to contact the Bodden Town Police on 947 2220 or Detective Constable Karen McQuade at 326-2558 or Crime Stoppers on 800 8477(TIPS).

    Well it's a good thing the police don't have guns…… That would just force the criminals to carry gu…….. Oh wait! That never satisfied me as a proper argument when I was workingthere! Still makes no sense to me now! Seems like maybe people need to realize that the criminals already have guns!

    We see these punks all the time. They are not invisible. They are not unknown to law inforcement. Why not run a few stings, send out some undercover officers at hot spots? Nooooo, Instead we are checking working Moms’ minivans for expired registrations, how about we focus on real issues, and real criminals? Why, because that would require effort and not lead to easy revenue.

    For this Christmas Holiday, Love one Another. Be careful at how much you drink before you get home and be aware of your surroundings. Spend it at Church and @ your children's Christmas program or spend time toview the beautiful lights. Christmas lives in our Hearts as the Holy Spirit, in our minds as God and in our ways as Jesus. 

    Our Families and close friends are precious so look out for " One Another". End the year well and Forgive and ask Forgiveness to who may have offended you or the one you may have offended you. God Bless to each and everyone and focus on the good. Remember the sick and the less fortunates. To God be the Glory. Michel Lemay and Family.

    A 20.000 fine for the owner of a bar in case of shootings, and there will be no more shootings.

    Just have two armed security people in each bar at the expense of the owner.

    As an owner you have the right to deny people from entering. And they know who the problem makers are.

      What you say is true but do you really think that is the solution to this problem. That is only a possible solution to preventing the shootings from taking place inside the bars as opposed to outside of the bars. You get me ?

    Public seems to have little response to so much crime.

    What to do?

    Lets get some politicians to bash Baines, he must be responsible.

    Or Dart moving the road and destroying our heritage.

    Or…

    Until the citizens of Cayman take an honest look at themselves and their families and develop a zero tolerance for criminal behavior.

    The blame game will continue.
