Injury reported from shooting incident

A man was taken to hospital Sunday afternoon by a family member after suffering what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the hand.

Royal Cayman Islands Police Service investigators said the shooting was reported around 3.45pm in the North Sound Estates area.

It was unclear how the injury to the man’s hand had occurred and there were varying stories reported at the scene. Police could not immediately state whether the injury – if it occurred as a result of a gunshot – was self-inflicted.

No one had been arrested in connection with the incident as of Sunday.

The man expected to recover from his injuries.
