One charged in McField Square triple shooting

One of three men arrested Monday in connection with a triple shooting in George Town on Saturday March 28, 2015 was charged on Thursday and will appear in court next week.

Police have not released the name of the 34-year-old George Town man, who has been charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and wounding, and who remains in police custody.

The other two males arrested in relation to the shooting have been released on police bail while investigations continue.

The shooting occurred around 4 a.m. Saturday morning near McField Lane and School Road in George Town when two masked men approached on foot and fired multiple shoots into a crowd of people. Three Caymanian women were shot, the most seriously of whom suffered injuries to her chest and abdomen. Another of the women suffered arm injuries and required a hospital stay, while the third shooting victim was discharged from the hospital later on Saturday.

Police described the shooting as “alarming” because of the seemingly indiscriminate nature of the shooting and said it was unusual for three people to be hit by gunfire in one incident, particularly when all three were females.

Police are asking anyone with information to call George Town CID on 949-4222, the major incident room on 926-3975, or Crime Stoppers on 1-800-TIPS (8477).
