Police Investigate Report of Shots Fired in George Town

Investigations continue into the shooting which occurred on Sunday, 25 February, at the Ed Bush Field in West Bay, with police conducting several proactive operations throughout the day yesterday, 27 February. Police continue to appeal for anyone who was present at the location at the time of the incident to come forward and provide information.

“We believe there were hundreds of people present at the Ed Bush stadium at the time of this shooting but we have only been able to make contact with a small percentage. I would urge anyone who was present, including families and friends of the teams playing or other persons present, to contact us, if they haven’t done so already. Any information, no matter how seemingly minor, could assist in the investigation, and allow us to more quickly bring the perpetrators to justice,” says Superintendent Peter Lansdown.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call 9-1-1 or the RCIPS Major Incident Room at 649-2930.

Persons can also attend their nearest police station or speak directly with a trusted officer.

“We are also particularly interested in any video footage persons may have the incident. Again, no matter how seemingly minor,” adds Superintendent Lansdown. Clips can also be submitted via the RCIPS website at the link above, or by email to pr@rcips.ky<mailto:pr@rcips.ky> .

Additionally, Cayman Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information that leads to the arrest, charge or conviction of individuals responsible for this incident. The Cayman Islands Government have also decided to support this reward with an additional $200,000 toward solving the crime.

Tips can be submitted anonymously via the Cayman Crime Stoppers websitehttps://caymancrimestoppers.com/  or by downloading the Cayman Crime Stoppers app.
