The suspect was in his late 20s to early 30s, about 5’7”, wearing a white shirt and jeans. The victim was taken to hospital by private vehicle, where he remains in stable condition, according to an RCIPS press release.

The matter is under investigation and anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has any information is asked to contact George Town CID 949-4222.

    This is when the Bio Button worn by all would be helpful.

    More chance of being killed at a gas station than contracting the ‘rona. Fact.

    There have been pockets of rotten people/groups/gangs afoot for decades. Many of them well-known in their communities, and their territories and industrial specialities known to police for years. Some of them are far too dangerous to bear witness against, especially when neither police force nor abiding government can be fully-trusted to secure the anonymity/safety of witnesses, or locate functioning CCTV footage at critical moments of evidence gathering. What are we going to do about these factors? When are enabling governance, and betrayal of anonymous witnesses, going to be the topics, Mr Governor? This was (again) a problem highlighted in last years failing CFATF report card. Cayman Islands corruption is not going to go away simply by holding our noses and ignoring its existence. Until then, we should expect coddled sociopaths to hurl cinder blocks with impunity whenever someone innocent has the misfortune of straying into the path of their demented reality.

      I think we should consult with the Security Centre for solutions.

        At the very least, the license plate tracking system should be able to list all vehicles in the vicinity of the gas station at 3:30am.

          Do we have a tracking system that works? Na-a-a-a.

            2:43pm any old fool can contact the government with a stupid idea and they run with it. CCTVs and the license plate tracking system are wasted taxpayers money. The old school boys.

          You’re assuming that vehicles have legible plates on.

          Way to go, DVDL.
