Police were called to a report of gunshots being fired outside a bar located on Eastern Avenue in George Town at around 3:00am on 4 May. Firearms officers who attended the scene found several spent shell casings and learned that the injured man had been taken to the hospital.

Police have opened an investigation and are appealing for witnesses to come forward and provide information about this shooting as well as another gun-related incident over the weekend. In the second incident, one man was stabbed and another narrowly escaped being attacked with a machete when police officers intervened.

    if there really are only 60 gang members, detain them all for national security for 3 months and see if this all stops. Can’t hurt to try.

        I gave you a thumbs up for sentiment and your passion, but let’s not get carried away with that “tarred and Feathered” thing. WE elect our MPs. Yes, we often wish for more choices, however you and me are completely to blame for those in office right now.

        NO tarring and feathering. I would stand between you and those MPs, much as some of them piss me off.

    No leave the bar open so the low life can kill each other there and not endanger the rest of us.

    Eastern Avenue, I’m shocked, I tell you!

    Who would have thought that an area abandoned by any meaningful enforcement from RCIPS, WORC etc would be a breeding ground for gun violence?!?!

    As for the bar, anyone who patronizes the place knows exactly what they can look forward to.
