Police are asking the public for help in locating two suspects after a man was shot in the arm early Saturday morning after returning home near Frank Sound Road in North Side.
Shortly before 2 a.m., a 51-year-old businessman who arrived home in his vehicle was confronted as he walked toward his front porch by a man who shouted, “Hold Up!”, according to a news release issued by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
The victim then threw a bottle at the suspect, who discharged a firearm, authorities said.
Police said the victim received what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his left forearm. The suspect then ran off toward the direction of Frank Sound Road. When the suspect was running away, the victim said he noticed a second person also running away.
The victim was transported to Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town where he underwent successful surgery, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Khalesiah Barboram at 326-1899.
