A video of a shooting incident which occurred at a local gas station has been widely circulated on social media.

Police have confirmed the incident occurred at Sol Gas Station in Charles Rowe Bridge St George on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

A male, 23-year-old Shaquille Callender of Odessa McClean Avenue, My Lords Hill in St Michael received a gunshot injury to his leg.

Police reports indicate the shooting, which occurred around 12.15 am, was as a result of an argument between Callender and the unknown gun man.

Callender was reportedly inside the gas station when he and the shooter became engaged in an argument. Callender left the service station and went outside to a motor car. He returned to the service station and made an attempt to re-enter the building.
