Joshua Ebanks, a.k.a. Patchy

(CNS): The police have charged Joshua “Patchy” Ebanks (25) from West Bay in connection with a shooting rampage in George Town in the early hours of 3 June. Although officers recovered shell casings from one of the scenes, he has been charged at this stage with possession of an imitation gun. However, the case is still under investigation and further charges could be forthcoming. Ebanks was remanded in custody until later this month.

Ebanks is accused of being one of at least three men who fired on another local man outside the Roof Top Bar on Mary Street. Following that shooting, another fifteen shots were fired at a house in Myles Road, a short distance away.

No one was injured, even though a considerable number of shots were fired, but the indiscriminate shooting has raised significant concern for police.

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to: covid-questions@caymannewsservice.com

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
