Suspects arrested by armed officers

A man and woman were arrested at gunpoint Tuesday in a dramatic scene in George Town.

Witnesses driving along Crewe Road around noon said armed officers with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Uniform Support Group were seen taking the two people into custody.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. A 36-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact of attempted murder, obstruction and disorderly conduct.

The arrests are believed to relate to a shooting that occurred on School Lane Friday. Police investigating the incident initially said they had found no evidence that gunshots were fired. Police later said that shot had apparently been fired, but no one was injured.
