(CNS): The two West Bay men, aged 24 and 40, who were arrested on Friday and Saturday in connection with the shooting at the Ed Bush Field on Sunday, 25 February, have been released on bail, pending further investigation, the RCIPS confirmed and asked for the public’s patience as the investigation continues. After an arrest, a person can only be detained for up to 48 hours before they are charged or released unless the police make a successful application to a court.

All of those who were shot and wounded, including the men that the police believe were targetted in the shooting, have been released from hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
