One Man Detained for Shooting on George Street

Hilberto Romero

Police say they have arrested one man in connection with a shooting incident in a known hot spot in the city. It happened around ten o’clock on Sunday night. No one was injured, but police say it appears to be connected to an inter-gang rivalry.


Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“Police responded to a shooting incident on George Street. Upon arrival they observed a van with damages to the rear windshield. Investigation revealed that a male person was in the area along with others when there was an argument and as a result the male person fired shots towards the crowd of persons. And other male persons who were in the area came, pulled out a firearm and fired shots and that is when the van was damaged. One person is in custody and we are seeking the other person that was involved in the shooting.”



“Is this a product of some sort of inter-gang rivalry or something like that?”


Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero

Yes. There was some sort of misunderstanding between the persons and that resulted in the shots being fired. The persons are from that area.”
