A 47-year-old man was the victim of Monday night’s shooting at 2nd Avenue, Vauxhall, Christ Church.

Chesterfield Yearwood, of the same address, was reportedly sitting on a bench with some men in a track not far from his home when the incident occurred around 9:10 p.m.

A police release said some men were observed walking along the track towards an unoccupied house near where the men were sitting.

These men approached the victim and a scuffle ensued, during which two loud explosions were heard. Yearwood received injuries to his right elbow and left hip and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.

Anyone who can provide any information that can assist with these investigations is asked to contact Oistins Police Station at 418-2608, Police Emergency 211, Crime Stoppers at 1-800 (TIPS) 8477 or any police station. (PR/SAT)
