Christ Church man shot in the groin

Yet another shooting incident has rocked a local community, this time in Silver Hill Drive, Christ Church.

The victim is Hugh Harewood of Wotton Plantation, Christ Church. Harewood was reportedly involved in an altercation with another man who allegedly shot him.

The assailant fled the area on foot and Harewood was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance. 

According to police reports, the incident occurred about 7:15 am today, Monday July 16, 2018 and resulted in 53-year-old Harewood being shot in the groin area. 

There were no other reports of damage or injury to other persons or property. 

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact Police at Oistins police Station 418-2612, Police emergency 211 or any Police Station.

This is the third shooting incident reported in the last two weeks, with a mother being shot dead outside a community gym last week and a young man being shot while leaving a party cruise.
