Two 19-year-old men were treated in hospital for injuries following a shooting on Court Street last night when several shots were fired on the block between Dundonald and Elliot Street.

Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford said early this morning it was "still too early in the investigation to piece together who was involved".

But he confirmed both men were known to police. The shooting occurred at 11.20pm.

Both men were attended to for their injuries at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and have since been released.

Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford said: “To think that earlier there was an expression of real community spirit with this same area set up as a street market with people from not just Pembroke, but other areas as well, visiting to patronise the various vendors and spend quality time with their families. Now we’re dealing with this senseless act of violence.”

Mr Glasford urged anyone with information on this incident to use one of the many options available to the public for providing information which could assist in the arrest of those responsible for this incident.

Anyone in the area of Court Street around the time of the shooting should call the independent, confidential Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477, the serious crime unit at 247-1749, or the police line 211.
