Police said Mr. McField was dropped off by someone in a black car, possibly a Toyota Supra. Police are appealing for the driver of the car, or anyone who saw that car in the area, to come forward.
Detectives have been interviewing Mr. McField since his admission to hospital Friday morning, police said.
“However, at this stage the circumstances around what happened, and where, are not clear,” an RCIPS press release noted.
Mr. McField, a former government minister and radio talk show host, was shot sometime overnight or early Thursday morning.
According to a police statement on the incident: “Shortly after 6am, police received a report that a man had been admitted to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg. The injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, police enquiries are ongoing.”
Mr. McField was contacted by the Caymanian Compass in his hospital bed around 8.30am Thursday via cell phone. Although he said he was in pain, Mr. McField said he was “doing a little better than he thought he would be”.
The former government minister confirmed that it was he who had been shot in the leg, but he could not immediately specify where the incident had happened or how he came to be shot.
Mr. McField, who is a sociologist, was philosophical about being shot in the leg.
“Well, it’s better than being shot in the head,” he said.
