Bullet Grazed PG Man

Police say a man was grazed to the head by a bullet whilst he was riding his bicycle in Punta Gorda. On Friday night around ten-thirty, Police were called out to Jose Maria Nunez Street where they saw an injured Brighton Jacobs. Jacobs has since refused to cooperate with police, but cops say they want to take the gun off the street so they are following up the incident.

“Police responded to Jose Maria Nunez street in Punta Gorda Town where they saw on Brighton Jacobs, twenty-one-year-old, with an apparent gunshot injury to the back of the head. Initial investigations reveal that Jacobs was riding on Jose Maria Nunez Street when he was approached by two other male persons on bicycles riding in opposite direction, one of whom fired the shot that caught Jacobs to the back of the head. Police have since commenced an investigation into the matter.  The complainant Mr. Jacobs has been interviewed, however, he is reluctant to cooperate with the police with regards to this investigation. We are still trying to seek a suspect to see if we are able to remove that firearm off the street.”
