FOUR PEOPLE sustained gunshot injuries during an apparent clash of feuding groups early this morning.

The incident occurred at Bournes Land, Silver Sands, Christ Church during a promotional fete around 2:30 a.m.

Reports are that a fight broke out, gunshots went off soon after and four people – three men and one woman – received firearm injuries during the melee. As people scampered in fright, one woman was injured in the stampede.

All the injured party-goers were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by private vehicle. None of the injuries was life-threatening, police stated.

Reports making the rounds are that the one man was shot in the abdomen and the trampled woman may have broken bones. (PR/AC)
