(CNS): One man has been shot in the groin and a second man hit on the head with an object during a barroom brawl outside the Jungle Room at Trafalgar Place, on the West Bay Road, at about 2am on Saturday, 5 June. Four men were said to have been involved who were all known to each other. The injured were taken to hospital by the emergency services, where they are being treated for what police said appear to be non-life-threatening injuries. Meanwhile the culprits reportedly left the location in a vehicle before the police arrived.

The matter is currently under investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have any 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 the RCIPS website.

    When you squeeze a balloon you know what happens? Soome of the air move from one area to another.
    So shutting the place is not the permanent answer we’re looking for. Yes it would be a temporary fix. Random inspections. Enforcement. And a ban on music which attracts violence. Dj’s on work permit should not be allowed to play music in commercial establishments whether for free or not
    unless properly licensed by the authorities. “code of ethics” established and strictly enforced. This will hopefully be a start to bringing back some level of decency at some of these establishments. Thankfully places like Mango Tree, South Coast bars Sunset house, to name a few dosen’t allow such music to be played at their venues. And look at the beautiful and respectful people who hang out there. Yes all nationalities. Reggae must bring back love just like soca, calypso, bachata Country music, rhythm and blues… and of course Karaoke too:)

      What about DJs not on work permits? Or can Caymanian DJs be trusted to play the right kind of music?

      Serious question. What kind of music attracts violence?

        National Anthems.

        Listen and understand the lyrics- And the background sounds of gunshot in some of these dancehall music and let me know your findings. You as an individual may not be influenced or act violently by it. But can you be assured that the next person won’t be? Think about that for a moment.

    All you generational Caymanians on here talking about Jamaicans forget that 9 generations away your great great came from the red skin parish of St.Elizabeth on a BOAT. I sick of unna. Unna behaving like Jamaicans are the worst set of people unna ever meet. Some of unna are hypocrites. Slander Jamaicans on this site and go out to brunch and all sorts of trip with unna Jamaican friends, or go lay down with unna Jamaican man/gal. That’s why unna kids confused. Self hate is a terrible thing and such a pity unna were taught self hate by all
    unna “generational caymanians” with great greats from Jamaica. Stop judging a whole group of people, there are over 2 million people in Jamaica, do you know how much cayman that is? Have any of you generational caymanians met that much? No. And to be honest, in the past the only Jamaicans who came here were the red skin ones or the skill trained ones who could not compete in Jamaica. Why is that so? I dare not say it. Thank God that CIG is now trying to import educated people globally to water down this gene pool of generational caymanians

    I am a generational Caymanian. I went there many many years ago and 99% of the patrons were Jamaicans. I felt very uncomfortable there because of the actions I witnessed and never went back. Can’t believe this place is still open especially since it is on Seven Mile Beach. Please don’t get the paper caymanians mixed up with generational Caymanians. Chopping people up and shoot ups in clubs and bars has never been our culture That is the culture of Jamaica, don’t believe me pick up the Jamaican Gleamer and read it.

      What happened at Jungle has nothing to do with the nationality of its partons. The fact is when arrogant people get together and drink, things happen. I’ve seen one drunk caymanian attack a sober caymanian at a caymanian owned party spot. I never once said ‘o look at the caymanians, wild and disgusting’. Maybe if we all accepted the state of the world and humans heart we would be able to put better security in place and stop using trust to run bars and club.

          8:08pm, that’s because you don’t know of their behavior or refuse to believe that ‘caymanians’ do wrong anywhere,dumb!

          For simple reasons. Caymanians do not migrate for many reasons, there’s not enough caymanians to travel to multiple countries and influence cultures and the Cayman Islands is not so well known globally. Thank God for covid, without it the world would still be asking where is the Cayman Islands.

      7:05am, is it only Jamaicans that cause trouble and shoot each other? You need to watch the news from your beloved USA and especially the place you visit so often,MIAMI.Done

        And how many Americans do we have involved in violence and violent crime here?

        True. Some Jamaicans cause trouble in Miami too.

          Bob Marley 1/2 brother was shot dead in the 90’s in a Miami shopping mall for shooting a shot gun. And they buried him with Bob. Go figure. One singing for peace and the other shooting to kill.

      talk to rcips about nationalities commiting most crimes….
      caymanians commit 90% of crime but only account for 50% of population….very well done!

      7.05am They not only coming by Canoe we also have flights weekly bringing more in. I thought Repatriation meant sending them back to the country from whence they came so empty flights returning should be the norm. However they have such influence in Cayman that we seem unable to rid ourselves of them.

    Move that place out. Put in a cigar, whiskey, rum bar. Couple card tables would be nice.

      Hank, are you sure? How would you go about stopping it? Never mind! I just thought of it……. Let’s make hand guns illegal !!!!!

      • just sayin says:

        Make the bars responsible for their clientele. Keep records of incidents and gradually ramp up the pressure for the bar owner to control it or remove their license and close them down.

      2 shootings in a weekend

  12. Anonymous says:

    I hear people say foreign nationals are to blame but if you read the archives very few foreigners are to blame for solved shootings. cayman has piss poor border patrols. Anyone can put a gun on a boat and come to cayman with a 99% chance of not being caught. Thats why there are so many illegal guns cause if people are being shot and the guns are not being recovered that means they are still on Island. Until a 24/7 Coast guard patrol boat presence is on the water the situation will not improve as the enforcement is backwards. The current strategy seems to be look for guns once they reach, that should change to stop guns from reaching as much as possible. Cayman is going down the drain with go fast boats smuggling here and the current strategies are not effective. Every couple of years government gives some money to fix the current boats and then no investment for the next few years. The coast guard needs proper training from the Us coast guard, proper funding, proper management and proper policies cause the current pace they are moving at is not satisfatory.

    So, four individuals who all know and can identify each other, two GBHs, one with highly illegal weapon, and still too hard to make any arrests. Does Imperato not have any cctv at this site? What about the construction site next door?

      You mean the one that’s half way into the main road? That clearly is a safety hazard from a pedestrian, motor vehicle, cyclist perspective??…who approved this one guys?

      I mean it’s literally in the road.

      But, sticking to the facts of this article, guns and jungle….what else is new?

      I will be worried when I read guns and camana bay….till then, let’s enjoy…and can someone please look into why that new concrete jungle next to jungle is allowed to break the law…

    Place should have been closed down a long time ago, for a bar on the 7 mile beach that can’t make a frozen/ blended drink, (don’t have a blender) don’t have ice on occasions that about says it all.
    Service not intended for the visitor/tourist or any decent local.
    No Security, and over crowed on Friday and especially Saturday nights, drugs consumed on the outside and back patio, where is law enforcement and liquor license regulator.

      A complete toilet of a place. Surprised there aren’t more shootings here. Very ‘select’ clientele in there i.e. no expats or work permit holders.

      When was the last time you saw a Liquor Inspector or whatever it is they’re calling them now? They’re too busy sitting up in the Government Building collecting big money and can’t be seen after 4 pm. Enforcement is a joke when it comes to the powers that be for liquor licensing. Although bars are not responsible for what takes place outside in the parking lots, the liquor board needs to get up off its ass, get out there in the nights to observe other offences that are taking place in these bars and nightclubs and do their jobs!

    This place needs its liquor licence revoked and needs to be shut down. Again and again it’s the site of serious violence and everyone just lets it continue on.

      I think you can trace the origins of much of this behavior to somewhere other than Cayman.

        It’s not with racist or snobbish intent that some properly identify the ever-escalating crime, noise and thuggery predominantly — but not always — with a Jamaican thug culture. This is only a small part of this culture. As with other cultures, there are good and bad within them, most being good and productive. Most of us who’ve been here for 30 years or more have helplessly watched the advance and growth of these antisocial behaviours. Progress? Not at all.

    And the purpose of keeping any bar or nightclub open after midnight?

  17. Anonymous says:

    Why can these persons exert their obvious pep-up energies for the good of the communities? Try to do good for a change rather than continuing to create more havoc in our country.

    That will be the day we can all rejoice. Please try it. It just might make something positive out of you all.
