A home invasion that involved a firearm is being treated as an attempted murder, the national security minister said last night.

Renee Ming said the police service’s Serious Crime Unit continued to investigate the incident, which happened in the early hours of last Saturday morning on the outskirts of St George.

She added: “Few acts of crime can be more frightening than to have the safety of a home disturbed by someone brandishing a gun.”

Ms Ming said a man is expected to appear in court in connection with the incident “in the near future”.

•It is The Royal Gazette’s policy not to allow comments on stories regarding criminal court cases. This is to prevent any statements being published that may jeopardise the outcome of that case.
