Police reconstruct crime scene

A number of police vehicles and officers were seen in the parking lot of Pepper’s Lounge on West Bay Road Tuesday night, but the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service assured the public that no criminal incidents had occurred there that evening.

Investigators were actually using the space to re-create the scene of a shooting which occurred early Saturday morning outside the club.

A police spokesperson said officers used vehicles placed at various locations in the parking lot to make a scale drawing of the area.

The man who was shot in the face outside the club on Saturday, 23 February is expected to recover.

Police arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the incident.
