Two injured, one critical after Princes Town shooting

One man is in a critical condition following a shooting incident in Princes Town.

The victim, Dion Walters, was listed as being warded in a critical condition up to Tuesday morning.

According to reports, around 10:00 pm on Sunday, Walkers and Shakeil Odel were liming with a group of friends along Sixth Company Circular Road, Princes Town, when a strange man was observed riding a bicycle.

The assailant stopped a short distance away and pulled out a firearm.

He then shot at the group before riding away quickly.

In the aftermath, it was discovered that both Walters and Odel had been shot.

The police and paramedics were notified and the two wounded men were rushed to the Princes Town Health Facility, where they were treated, and then transferred to the San Fernando General Hospital.

Odel’s injuries, police said, were not life-threatening, and he was eventually discharged on Monday.

However, Walters’ injuries were more significant, and he remained warded.

No arrest has been made in this incident.

More on this as it becomes available.
