Security guard shot on King Street

In recent days security guards have become a preferred target of thieves looking to rob them of their firearms. Last night another guard was attacked…and is now in the hospital with a gunshot wound. Peter Scott, a thirty-six year old Jamaican employed as security for Bowen and Bowen on King Street, told police that around 9:30 a dark complexioned man rode up to him on a bicycle and fired a single shot. It caught Scott in his upper right chest. He was rushed to the K.H.M.H. and is reported to be in serious condition. No arrest has yet been made.
