(CNS): Amid concerns about the rising level of gun violence on Grand Cayman, a vehicle was apparently hit in the crossfire of a shoot-out in the parking lot of an unnamed bar on Shedden Road early Monday morning. Police said they received reports of an altercation at the bar just east of North Sound Road at around 1am.

The police were told that multiple people were involved in the fight, in which shots were fired. Armed officers dispatched to the scene recovered a number of spent casings and seized a vehicle that had been damaged by the gunshots for it to be forensically processed.

No physical injuries were reported as a result of the incident, the police said.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information about it 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 website. Tips can also be made anonymously to

    CPS needs to implement mandatory minimums for anyone using a firearm in the commission of crime…i.e. displaying a firearm in commission of a crime 10 years; discharge of a firearm in commission of a crime with no injuries 15 years; injury or death using a firearm in the commission of a crime 25 to life…Also, need to set up gun free zones (300 ft diameter) around schools and religious institutions so if any of the above happens within these zones there is an enhancement to the mandatory minimums…The new commissioner is going to be busy…

    If they have decent CCTV in the car park and the bar, it should be beyond simple to identify the patrons responsible.

    Catch them, and ship them off to Kingston. Even if they’re from here they should do that. They want to live in the ghetto? We should encourage them to go, so they can enjoy living with other like-minded idiots.

        #facts, it’s high time we look at ourselves and the society we created. Crime is being perpetrated by our own home grown criminals. The Police may have their faults however the breakdown of our societal norms rest on our shoulders alone.

        9.18 and if someone plants a gun on you or your property and you are convicted and get the mandatory 25 years you will still be as happy.Right?

    I’m sure the CCTV will have picked it up, and the bad guys making their escape. They’ll be in custody by the end of the day.

    I am flabbergasted! I am behooved to speculate the this shocking altercation was due to a person not being called by their preferred pronouns while holding a Bud Light.

      In my whole life, no-on has ever corrected me over a pronoun. You only ever seem to see it on trolling news.

      Why do people get so upset about something they will never experience.

      In my anecdotal experience, you can be run over 3 times, get mugged twice, and diagnosed with Cancer, but never corrected over a pro-noun

      Personally, I find the above experiences should get far more priority and focus than fretting over some-one correcting you, I mean that could be fatal, LOL.

      But that is the culture

    Stray bullets hitting passer by cars. Sounds like Kingston Jamaica

      What makes you think it was a passer by car, and not either a car parked at the bar or one involved in the shooting. Police “seized” the vehicle.

    Is there a reason why the police release so little information about these incidents?

    • Anonymous says:

      You know who the minister is for the location? Lots of murders, robberies and shooting in the area with no clear plans to reduce crime.

      They are either incompetent, or involved.
