Police release suspect in Mary Street shooting

| 23/03/2010

(CNS): Police say enquiries into the shooting of a woman on 5 March in the Mary Street area of George Town are ongoing. However, the RCIPS said they have released the 32-year-old man who was detained following the shooting on suspicion of attempted murder. He has not been charged and is now on police bail.  The man was arrested after the victim received a gun shot wound to her face while sitting outside a bar in Barnes Plaza. She remains in hospital, and police have told News 27 that she is in a stable condition. Meanwhile, the staff of Prospect Primary discovered the school had been burgled this weekend with the culprits stealing the money the kids had raised for Haiti Earthquake relief.

Police say a window was broken and the thieves searched through the file cabinets. They also went intio the principal’s office, vice principals office and a few of the classrooms before making off with the cash.

Cayman 27 has also reported that the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) office located next to Prospect Primary School was broken into over the weekend.

    Has no one thought of installing burglar alarms in public buildings?

    They may be sick individuals, but they really don’t care!  As long as they can get some cash for their next hit, they’re happy!

    Stable condition?? How stable would you feel if you were shot in the face and the suspect was released on bail????

    Just typical of the  RCIP. It’s like fishing, catch and release!!

      Just a typical comment from someone that does not know why the person has been released, so blame someone! In this case RCIP. If no witnesses come forward and there is not enough evidence to prosecute, the LAWS do not allow the RCIP to hold the suspect indefinitely.

      In stead of looking to blame the Police we should ALL be looking at how we can assist them.

    There are some seriously sick individuals that would steal charity money that was supposed to help the needy people in Haiti that had suffered so much devastation.

    You Caymanians should be ashamed of yourselves for continually protecting and hiding these monsters and refusing to speak out despite their blatant disrespect for honest people and their property.

      Don’t you think "you Caymanians" is a little vague?  That’s like blaming all dogs for a on-occasion pitbull attack.

      I’m Caymanian and don’t know anything in relation to the crime spike. I wish I did. And I wish people spoke up.  But more so I wish the police would listen.  I know plenty (of Caymanians, yes) who have had their homes broken into and have witnessed small crimes occur, and not a single one has been investigated properly, the police reports haven’t been filed and no follow-ups have taken place.

      While the generalization can hold as it’s probably hard to say expats know much about what’s going on, this is quite unfair and offensive.

      Is that to say all Caymanians have something to hide and that there aren’t that are honest people with property also being disrespected?  This crime wave is just as much a shock to many Caymanians so your generalised statement is equally disrespectful.
