Cayman Islands News, Grand Cayman Island local news(CNS): The man who was charged with attempted murder in connection with a daylight shooting in March of this year at Barnes Palaza in George Town has been released by the courts. Charges against 32-year-old Royden Robinson from West Bay, who was accused of shooting Sandra Connor in the face, have been dropped. Robinson, who had maintained his innocence from the point of his arrest, was also charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm. A Summary Court magistrate ruled there was insufficient evidence for the case to move forward to the Grand Court, News 27 has reported. Connor was hospitalized after the incident, having received serious injuries to her face.

The shooting of Connor outside the bar at around 4 o’clock in the afternoon of Friday 5 March was the fourth firearms incident in a 24 hour period and in a month when gang related shootings in Cayman reached unprecedented levels.
