REAL NEWS – The report of a shooting incident and a businessman running from two masked gunmen is being investigated by the Police.
Reports say the Skerritts Pasture proprietor of Mini Mart, located in that village, complained to the Criminal Investigations Department that, while he was sitting on the front step of his business, he heard a loud explosion that sounded like gunshot.
Allegedly, he then saw two masked men running from an eastern direction towards him, with one brandishing what appeared to be a shotgun and the other carrying a handgun.
Fearing for his life, the businessman said he ran to the western area of his yard and jumped a galvanize fence to escape the bandits.
However, in the process, he sustained a laceration to his right foot, for which he received treatment at the hospital and was discharged.
The two masked men were said to be of slim build and about 5’ 8” in height, and were dressed in long blue jeans and long-sleeved, hooded shirts, with black masks concealing their faces.
The Police who visited the scene carried out a search of the surrounding areas for spent shells or shotgun cartridges, but without success.
This offence reportedly occurred at about 9:45 p.m. on September 28.
