Police shooting probe continues

A police investigation continues into the “brazen attack” that saw several shots fired at jet ski riders following a night of revelry over the National Heroes Day holiday.

According to police spokesman Dwayne Caines, the two gunmen are believed to have been riding a white scooter, possibly a SYM HD 125 or Honda Scoopy, along Harbour Road on Monday night.

Just before 8pm, the men fired “multiple shots” at individuals riding a jet ski off Darrell's Wharf in Warwick as the tour boat Coral Princess came in to dock with a party of locals on board.

No injuries were reported and police made three arrests yesterday as part of the investigation.

“We are pleased that some people have been brave enough to come forward and assist in bringing these offenders to justice,” Mr Caines said.

“However, more information is being sought — especially from persons who were on the cruise or the dock at the time of the incident.

“Detectives are particularly interested in receiving any video or photos, cell phone or otherwise, of the perpetrators or the persons on the jet ski that was the target of the shooters.

“Forensic evidence has been collected from the scene, and checks of CCTV in the area have also been completed. The process of reviewing this evidence has commenced.”

Anyone with possible information, including video or photographs, is urged to contact the Serious Crime Unit at 247-1739 or 295-0011.

Alternatively, details can be confidentially passed on to the CrimeStoppers hotline at 800-8477.
