Police are investigating a shooting on Fairchild Street around 3:45 pm today. Reports are that the shooting took place near the vendor stall.

At least one person, a 41 year old woman, was struck in her leg and was taken away by ambulance. There are also reports of a man being struck multiple times. Eyewitnesses on the scene told the NATION that he was taken to the hospital by private vehicle.

Initial reports reaching the NATION were that at least one of the victims was shot multiple times outside of the bus terminal and sought shelter inside the terminal.

One eyewitness who was in the area reported seeing the shooting unfold as he walked along Fairchild street.

“I heard about three shots, followed by two more. I turned around and saw a man in a white shirt running on the north side by the market and pointing the gun and then he ran down through the stalls. I saw him shoot and fire twice into the stalls and then I saw the people scattering,” he related.

More details as they come to hand.
