A child was hurt when a bullet fragment ricocheted into him during a robbery at a West Bay convenience store Saturday night.
According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, two masked men entered Vidette’s Grocery on Reverend Blackman Road just before 9:30 p.m. The men, in possession of a machete and a handgun, demanded cash from the store owner who was present during the time of the robbery.
One the robbers fired a shot, the fragments of which hit a six-year old boy who was inside the store, police said.
The child was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The suspects ran away after taking some cash. No arrests were immediately reported.
