(CNS): Police are investigating a report of gunshots that were fired at a house off Selkirk Drive in the Red Bay area of George Town on Sunday night around 11pm. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said that no one was hurt when the unknown gunman shot at the house before fleeing the scene in a vehicle. The shooting happened just over 48 hours after a man was shot near to a George Town liquor store on Friday.

The officers on the case are investigating any possible links and are urging witnesses to both incidents to come forward.

“Having two firearms incidents occurring on the same weekend is particularly concerning,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Lansdown of the Criminal Investigations Department. “We are investigating both incidents thoroughly, in part to establish if there is any link between them. We urge members of the public to come forward if they have any information on either incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222.Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, or website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously via the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online.

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:

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.
