Reward for info on police shooting

The Cayman Islands government is offering a $50,000 reward for information relating to shots fired at police at Lakeside Condos earlier this month.

Police have arrested six people in relation to the 11 April shooting. All have been released on police bail.

Cayman Crime Stoppers announced Monday that a reward is being offered from government for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone for murder, robbery or other serious or gun-related crimes.

Cayman Crime Stoppers Chairman Malcolm Ellis is appealing to members of the public to call the Cayman Crime Stoppers tips line if they have any information regarding this incident, in which shots were fired at police officers chasing four men who bailed out of an SUV in Lakeside. No one was 
injured in the shooting.

“While individuals have been arrested and questioned with regards to this incident, the police need as much information as possible in order to solidly identify those responsible and secure a conviction,” said Mike Ellis, chairman of Cayman Crime Stoppers.

Callers need never disclose their identify and are callers are given a unique code with which they can use to make a claim.

Anyone with information about the shooting can call Cayman Crime Stoppers at 800-TIPS (8477).


  1. I do hope the business community, and especially the Chamber of commerce, is stepping up and contributing with the police towards this reward, because the police is also protecting them and their business every day and night so it would only be fair well deserved to see the Private businesses contribute towards reward monies.
