Crime scene at Vic’s Bar

(CNS): Six people have been shot, one fatally, in a mass shooting at a George Town bar in the early hours of Friday morning. Police have released only a few details about the second horrifically violent incident in the capital in a week, but have said that the shooting happened inside Vic’s Bar at the end of Seymour Drive (aka Dump Road) in the industrial area at around 1:45am today. Five people were taken to hospital, one of whom is said to be in critical condition, while one man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have given no further details about how many gunmen were involved and whether or not this is directly connected to the recent spate of gun violence that saw four people shot last week in Martin Lane, in the central area of George Town. One man was killed another seriously injured and two others sustained non-life threatening wounds in that shooting. A George Town man was arrested in connection with that killing earlier this week and is understood to still be in custody, though police have not yet responded to CNS questions about whether or not he has been charged.

The RCIPS has remained relatively quiet about the spate of gun violence over the last month, and while various people have been arrested, no charges have been brought in connection with what is assumed to be gang-related crimes that began with a shooting at the Jungle Bar.

In a short press release this morning, Deputy Commissioner Kurt Walton said that additional officers had been called to help with this latest investigation. “We are working as quickly as we can to gather all evidence from the scene,” he said. “We are asking for everyone’s support and cooperation during this process. The public’s safety is our priority and we won’t leave any stone unturned in our investigative efforts.”

Seymour Road has been partially closed to the public and traffic is being diverted through Commercial Avenue. People are being asked to avoid the closed area of Seymour Road until the crime scene investigation is finished.

A major incident room has been opened and anyone with any information is asked to call 649-2930.

    I am Caymanian and una need to stop blaming foreignors for Cayman problems. You know how long this country has’nt had border security. You know how many locals use their captain skills to run cigar boats to Jamaica and Honduras? Enough that we don’t need foreign help for that. For those who seem to not understand what is going on let me explain. Customs and Border Control is working on permits and import duties while searching the sea port and airport for contraband and doing a great job at it cause most of the guns and drugs come on cigar go fast boats. The police are doing their job
    Well but are not a border patrol. The regiment is not a border patrol and they are for like when hurricane cleanup is needed. The Coast Guard is not properly trained, understaffed,underfunded and not fit for purpose to keep 24/7 partols at sea. So 99% of cigar boats go to the mangroves undetected and bring handguns and a few assault rifles for people that want them. These guns come from honduras and Jamaica usually. Now when a couple shootings happen una saying what is happening in cayman. Their is practically no border security in this country. The police remove a couple guns every year to have more imported on the cigar boats than they remove. Until this country takes border security seriously things will get worst. Cayman has so many illegal guns you could have good border security and 20 years will pass and the guns in cirrculation will still be used in crimes.

      I believe guns being brought into cayman is a by-product of the ganja trade. Ganja being so profitable in cayman makes these trips worth it. if they can add a gun and get some extra value why not. Until we make bringing ganja to cayman not worth it, they will keep on coming.

    There ought to be a mandatory life sentence for this type of firearms crime, not the minimal type of sentencing that is now being handed out followed by a release on license after a few weeks so that they can get on with their criminal activities.

    PACT – Transparency and Accountability are a joke in relation to the level of crime and what is done about it.

    The government and the people are denied any meaningful statistics on the number of crimes, the percentage of those crimes that ever get prosecuted, the percentage of serious violent crimes that are ‘cleared up’ by calling them something that they are not on the charge sheet, the percentage of criminal prosecutions that are dropped by reason of negligence, or even the very small number of people who are actually convicted of anything.

    The RCIPS knows who the players are. It’s time to start keeping a close watch on these thugs and raiding homes. The laws were changed for Covid lockdowns… have the laws changed to allow searches of thug homes and frisking them at random on the streets. Stay on them and send a clear message! Clean it up before it gets completely out of control!

    • Anonymous says:

      They need to do this. The police in the states use this tactic with gang members they stay on them and monitor them. They can randomly stop and search and also check their tattoos to see what gang they belong to. Seen it done in California Im pretty sure other states with gang problems do the same.

  6. Anonymous says:

    A large part of the problem is that the criminals have looked at the criminal justice system from the police to the courts and decided that the entire system is of no concern to them.

    The probability of a criminal being arrested is very low, the probability of a successful prosecution even lower and the probability of a meaningful sentence after conviction is lower still. Add to that the fact that the tiny percentage of people who get sent to prison are out after serving a tiny fraction of the notional sentence and you have a recipe for lawlessness such as we are now seeing on our streets.

    The only way this will improve is if our legislators pass deterrent laws and those charged with enforcing our criminal justice system are made to demonstrate their effectiveness or are forced to resign – every one of them.

    This has nothing to do with island fever. It has to do with Jamaican gangs. They want to turn Cayman into the Wild Wild West like Jamaica. Jamaican cops in Jamaica will shoot them on site, Cayman will arrest them, send them to Northward and give them 3 free meals, a warm bed, their ganga thrown over the fence so they have no fear in Cayman. Cayman you are 2 mins away from letting Jamaicans destroy your tourism product. PACT time to kick some ass and save your country.

    This is ridiculous. You can’t tell me that the cops do not know who these guys are, or where to find them. This is a tiny dot in the Caribbean with approx. 70,000 inhabitants. Everyone here is one degree of separation away from everyone else. Everybody knows everybody, or at least knows somebody who knows you. The Premier and the Police need to get off their backsides and end this stupidity NOW.

    Now that this problem is big news, the foreigners are going to be fearful. Maybe now those responsible for the safety of these islands will finally do something to stop this foolishness.

    We reject gun violence and gun culture. We will continue to search for the root cause of gun violence and work together to address them. Once determined, we will gather round the campfire, hold hands and sing Kumbaya My Lord, as bullets whistle past our heads. We will continue to talk, and talk, and then talk some more, like we’ve been doing for the past 30 years. It’s important that we all get the opportunity to express our feelings, as everyone’s feelings are important and need to be taken into consideration. Take note how well that has worked to date.

    We will continue to protect the fragile egos of our youth at all cost, declaring them all to be winners, no matter how minute the accomplishments. You learned to tie your shoelaces by Year 10, Congratulations!!!, here is your medal, certificate and $5 off Burger King Voucher. We will continue to hold nobody responsible, as too much responsibility is a burdensome thing, and a potential blow to your overinflated self-esteem. We shall do this by setting the example at the very top, by re-electing criminal politicians and their friends, and continue down the ranks.

    Johnny, you broke the classroom door because you were mad at your teacher for asking you to sit quietly down and complete your work? Well, here’s you prize for today, some time in the principal’s office where you can play in the corner with your favourite toys. You broke Ashton’s nose because he asked you to stop cutting in line and elbowing him in the ribs? Well you’ve just won some time with your vice principal to discuss your feelings, and what exactly Ashton did to make you break his nose and jawline. But if you do it again in the next week, I have to warn you, we’re going to have to send you home for two days with your favourite PS5 games, Grand Theft Auto, Postal, etc.

    We will continue to ensure that you know your rights from the first day that you are born. We will ensure that you learn that your rights and your feelings supersede those of society at large. Facts don’t matter, feelings do. Someone looked at you cross – whack him. We have nice and cozy jails, staffed with expensive psychologists and psychiatrists who will do nothing for you, other than provide you access to early release.

    We will continue to ensure that you understand that depending on your political leanings, race, religion and sex, you can get away with burning city blocks all in the name of equity. Should you be attending some sort of protest in San Francisco, feel free to loot any and all Walgreens that remain in the city – while there’s any remaining. Nothing will happen to you as theft is no longer being prosecuted.

    Most important, know that you are special. Whether you walk with your pants down at your ankles, mumble rapping about raping some hoe and her momma’s friend, or you’re working 14 hours a day in your white lab coat, trying to solve problems related to genome sequencing, you’re both equally special!

        So that gives them the right to be criminals?

        Is that what you’re saying?

        Honestly coming from a home that never gave you shit nor cared about you from day one SHOULD be more than enough reason to fight for the betterment of yourself!

        They just str8 up LAZY! they don’t wanna work hard nor work at all for anything they rather accumulate things by taking from those who do work hard!

        Just because you come from a broken home that doesn’t mean you have to remain broken!

        Bare in mind…..

        There’s BILLIONS of gallons of water that makes the sea which surrounds the ENTIRE world but yet ships still tend to float, why do you think that is even remotely possible?

        Here’s why….

        An entire sea of water cant sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.. Similarity, the negativity of the world cant put you down or destroy you unless YOU ALLOW IT TO GET INSIDE YOU!

        So all this talk about broken homes and people that don’t care is utter BS if you ask me!

        If you want better for yourself you’ll do better for yourself its just that simple! They choose to have weak minds and succumb to BS! Anything you want in life can be yours but it takes hard work and determination which is something people causing things like this actually lack and that’s sad!

        I’m a young caymanian who came from a home just like that but that never derailed me that actually pushed me to do even better than I was expected to all because I didn’t want to live my life like that!

        Whilst growing up I was hanging around a bad crowd and I did some bad things as well but I chose to put myself on the right track rather than to stay on the bad one I was already heading down on. Thankfully I chose to change my life around before I actually got in trouble. I’m almost 30 and I still have a clean police record.

        All because I didn’t wanna be another person who lost their way because life dealt me a shitty hand! I took that shitty hand gladly and turned it into something great! I’m no better than anyone out there yes I still struggle from time to time but at the end of the day my hard work and my determination still pays off more than falling victim to being dealt a shitty hand! It could’ve been way worse for me than it is right now but I did everything I possibly could for it not to be worse right now for me and I’m still pushing forward towards even more greatness!

        It really boils down to who you want to be as a person really!

      Speeding stops and traffic issue stops are, in fact, one of the most common ways that serious criminals are caught. Many many many times criminals don’t get apprehended for a big crime but mess up while driving and then do something suspicious which leads to arrest and then their info (fingerprints, DNA, etc) matches to crimes. Not only does traffic enforcement help to reduce accidents that might cause injury or death on the roadways, but it is a key avenue to catch criminals.

    Horrific and a serious threat

    If somebody posts this and the news of the other mass shooting in GT on the Tripadvisor Cayman site there will be far less demand from tourists.

      you’re kidding, right? there are like 2 mass shootings per day in the u.s. – they don’t care!

          146/350,000,000= .00000042
          5/70,000= .00007143
          .00007143/.00000042= 170
          So, I guess Cayman is 170 times more dangerous than the US.

        11:53, you are sorely misled! Americans do and will care. Areas in the US with high rates of gun crime, don’t get tourists either.

        For perspective, you need to remember that Cayman is smaller than many neighborhoods in the US. Two killings in a population this size is huge!

          Don’t try sweeping your dirt under a rug, what about the mass killings of over 50 innocent people in Las Vegas and Orlando plus the list goes on and on.

      Don’t worry- it’s been seen. People been watching the news for the opening, so see all the news that falls between. They’ve learned not to post it on TripAdvisor as it will just be deleted or a certain local person who posts on that site will say it was media blowing it out of proportion, but tourists are now privy to CNS, CMR , loopcayman and the Compass.

        The Compass??? The No-news newspaper! Hate to say it but CMR gets the news out faster (often by days) than anyone else… Cayman needs a real, trustworthy and 24/7 news room.

        Tourists have a subscription to the Compass and read CMR? Lol. Yeah right

        • Anonymous says:

          Just the headlines of the Compass. Listen to CMR and read most articles in Cayman News pertaining to crime or border opening maybe not daily, but quite frequently (a couple times a week

      Now being discussed on TripAdvisor. Took 2 days, but it made it

      There isn’t any demand anyway because no one wants to spend their vacation in quarantine. Perhaps we are marketing it wrong – you will be safe in quarantine from the runaway gun violence, which is statistically far more likely to kill or harm you than Covid.
