Pizza man shot with flare gun

| 07/06/2011

(CNS): Updated– Police have now confirmed that a Dominoes Pizza delivery driver was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town yesterday evening after he was injured by a flare. The 40 year old man was in the Prospect area when he was grazed on his abdomen by a flare which was fired into the car by his attacker. The driver had made a delivery in Orange Drive at around 7:40 pm and as he reversed out of the drive he was approached by the suspect who was armed with the flare gun and who fired into the car. It is not clear if the man was attempting to rob the pizza man but after firing the gun he then ran off. (Photo Dennie Warren Jr)

Police said he is described as being 5'10" in height, medium build, light complexion with a round shaped face and straight hair. He was wearing a dark short sleeved shirt and short jean pants.

Anyone with information should contact George Town CID on 9494222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 8008477 (TIPS).

    Perhaps not "organized" gang activity in the sense of gang initiation BUT lets suppose……"Check that Pizza Guy out"…."I'm gonna go pop this thing in his lap" (easy target, guys just out trying to make a buck) Perp walks up to the guy..shoots him. Perp get's the "respect" of his peers for being "bad"…moves up in their circle. We of course think the guys and Idiot. However he is surrounded by Idiots and he becomes a higher up Idiot within the circle of freinds he moves in…..Idiots capable of all sorts of things like this…where does it go from their? Robbery, Rape Murder. The Idiot needs to be stomped on by the hard shoe of the law so that he rethinks his choice and his friends are walking around saying .."Damn, do you know..cool mo dee got 25 years for attempted Murder". This is the ONLY thing that their small uneducated pea brain minds understand. The Problem is our Police are not up to the task. These people work for us and the goods we buy pay for their salaries. Time for a change. It won't get better until we take control. We the people.

Just standing spitting all over the place while everyone was eating their lunch at the picnic tables..looks like he was their with his Dad..just an older version of Him. Two black kids tried to come right in to the restaraunt area with their pants hangin way down with two pit bull mixes. Guard tried to stop the kids from coming in but they don't. These guys come in with their own booze and don't buy any from Rum Point Guards to scared to run them off. Friends of the white Kid.

      Are you seriously going to judge these boys due to the colour of their skin, hair and tattoo's??

       

      get with the changing times, what once was not socially acceptable is…tattoos, skin colour or hair colour does NOT define who a person is!

       

      Am i to then believe by your comment that if the boys were 'highty-tighty' dressed, natural hair, no dogs and only God knows what skin colour you'd have them be….that you would not associate them to 'think' they would be involved in crime?? I would have you know that you cannot judge a person by looks to judge if a person would be involced in crime!

       

      plz, get help….

    So I guess Flare Guns will be illegal to have as a safety measure for boaters now?

    Five robberies in less than three months in basically the same area…None solved..none patrolled…no effective policing…

     

    Three strikes Mr. Commissioner, you are out! Resign now and give us the opportunity to find someone effective.

    What is with the Political Correctness?Was this punk White,Asian,Hispanic,Black,Indian etc. etc..Why can the police NOT post a detailed description as given to them by the victim as to the race of this punk? These punks need to be "ratted" out and stopped before more people are hurt!! The families of these punks who know of the crimes should be jailed also.

    The violent sickness within the country is long past out of control. Emergency measures need to be taken as it will only get worse. What are those measures?

    The country needs to focus and every person in the country need to come together and get on the same page that violence armed or otherwise is not to be tolerated.

    Families need to report the sons or nephews or cousins who are out of control and prone to violence. To protect them is really only to enable them to continue the behavior of self destruction.

    Those who seek to divide the country need to shut up for once as everyone suffers from this sickness.

    You know who I am speaking about.

    This just shows how dumb people actually are in the Cayman Islands. Probably some young punk trying to be funny. harming someone physically is not funny and the person who did this belongs in a mental institution or prison.

    Okay….WHERE is the frickin patrol car for Prospect Drive???  I want answers! RCIP, you have now had FIVE robberies in less than 500 yards in the past three months.  Orange Dr, Mahogany Dr- (twice) McRuss corner store (twice)…have I forgot any?

    Clearly you have not caught the punk(s) in this area and it needs policing! Simple, simple, simple….stop and question the people roaming this area at night, they are up to no good.  Perhaps a little undercover work is needed, we know you have unmarked cars and plain clothes cops…so USE them!

    I've now lost complete faith in any levelof the RCIP.  I never see a patrol car in this area and clearly neither do the bad guys.  I've called to set up a neighborhood watch and got a lukewarm response.  Where is YOUR proactive police efforts in this residential area?  A zero tolerance crackdown is needed NOW.
