A man was shot during an early morning dispute outside a central George Town eatery Sunday.

Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officers said they received a report of a shooting on Rock Hole Road, behind the George Town Primary School campus, around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

When police arrived, the victim had already been taken to hospital by private car, officers said.

He was being treated at the Cayman Islands Hospital Sunday and medical personnel said it appeared he would survive.
