A man has been arrested and a second man is being hunted by police after a weekend shooting.

Chief Inspector Peter Stableford said a man had been arrested in connection with the incident on Saturday.

Daquan “Smokey” Williams

He added a second man, Daquan "Smoky" Williams, was wanted in connection with the attack in Orange Hole Road, St David’s, which happened just after 5pm on Friday.

Mr Stableford said Mr Williams, 25, from St George's, should not be approached.

But he appealed to the public to call 911 if he was seen.

Police said the 22-year-old victim, a St George's man, continued to recover in hospital from injuries which were said not to be life-threatening.

The victim sustained multiple injuries to his arms and stomach.

Mr Stableford said the investigation was in the early stages, but that the attack did not appear to be gang-related.

He added the shooting happened in a "small community where people have been very helpful".

Mr Stableford said: “We are interested in anyone who was in the area of Southside Road, Tommy Fox Road and Orange Hole Hill between 4.30pm and 7pm to get in touch if they saw anything suspicious.”

He added footage from private security cameras or dash cams should also be reviewed to see it could help the inquiry.

Information can be passed on through the police 211 number or the independent, anonymous and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477.
