(CNS) Updated Monday: The man who was shot outside a nightclub in the Seven Mile Beach tourist area early Saturday morning has now been released from hospital, police have said. The second man, who was struck with a gun and not shot as originally believed, discharged himself shortly after the incident. Initial reports had indicated that two people had been shot near Fete Nightclub on the West Bay Road this weekend.
However, in an update an RCIPS spokesperson clarified that when armed units arrived at the scene at about 3:15am on Saturday, 4 February, they found a 26-year-old man with what appeared to be a gunshot wound. The 29-year-old man who was hit with the gun was taken to hospital but discharged himself.
The Fete Nightclub was the scene of another shooting just over a month ago when one man was shot multiple times.
