Teen in stable condition after weekend shooting

Police are investigating a West Bay Road shooting after a teenager showed up at the hospital with a gunshot wound early Saturday.

An 18-year-old George Town man is listed in stable condition after being shot sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning. Police responded Saturday at 3:30 a.m. to a report of a shooting outside a nightclub on Seven Mile Beach and are investigating whether the two incidents are connected.

Police interviewed the man at the Cayman Islands Hospital at about 5:45 a.m. Saturday, where he went to be treated for a gunshot to the lower abdomen. Police say the injuries are not considered life threatening, and the man’s condition was listed as stable.

The shooting is the second incident in a month at the 7 Mile Shops plaza on West Bay Road. A month ago police arrested a 30-year-old man from George Town for allegedly stabbing another man, 18, outside of Nectar Bar. That man was charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

The victim was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital and treated for a collapsed lung.

Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call the George Town police station at 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
