Weeks calls for gangs to put down their guns
Reports of gunshots in Pembroke sparked a renewed call for peace from MP Michael Weeks.
According to Police, at around 12.20am on Saturday officers responded to reports of gunshots in the St Monica's Road area.
A Police spokesman said there were no reported injuires and no evidence in the area was found to substantiate the reports, but called for anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area to come forward.
Mr Weeks, the area MP and Shadow Minister for Community and Cultural Development, yesterday urged those involved in gang activity to put down their guns for the sake of their community.
“The recent and recurring incidents of shots being fired represent a clear and present danger to the families and children of our community,” he said.
“It is only a matter of time before yet another person, not caught up in the gang lifestyle, is caught in the crossfire. In the names of our families and our children, we call on those responsible to cease their reckless, unnecessary and illegal activity and put down the guns.”
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the police at 295-0011 or call the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
