Cops find ammunition after East End bar fight

| 02/08/2010

(CNS): Police say that they recovered three live rounds of ammunition in East End at the weekend following a major brawl involving several people. Although it is still not clear if shots were fired during the fight in which five people were later arrested police said that they have not found any spent rounds near the Eastern Star Bar where the disturbance had started nor did they find any firearms. At around 1:30 a.m. on 31 July an officer on patrol responded to a bar fight where people were reportedly throwing stones and bottles outside the bar. Police said the fight had started between two women inside the bar who were asked to leave by the security staff.

 
 An RCIPS spokesperson said when the officer arrived at the scene he found a number of people involved in a fight  and radioed for assistance. As the police officers tried to restore order, “a firearm may have been discharged” the spokesperson said. The RCIPS did find two live rounds of ammunition and later recovered another one. Officers took five persons into custody in relation to the incident.
 
Police are now asking for witnesses or people with anything that can help the investigation to call either the George Town Police Station on 949-4222, the Bodden Town Police Station on 947-2220, or the anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line on 800-TIPS (8477).
