(CNS): Police are investigating yet another case of gun violence after a man was shot in the stomach in the early hours of Friday morning in Finch Drive, West Bay. At around 2:00am the victim was transported in a private vehicle to the Cayman Islands Hospital, where his injuries were reported to police by medical staff. Officers who attended the hospital determined where the incident might have happened and other units were dispatched to Finch Drive, where “evidence of a firearm” was found and undisclosed items were “recovered for forensic analysis”.

This resulted in the arrest of the 23-year-old resident of West Bay on suspicion of possession and consumption of cocaine and ganja. He was transported to the Cayman Islands Detention Centre for processing.
