LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS are cautioning against vigilantism after the latest shooting incident caused shock and fear in a St Michael community.

Police reported that sometime after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, an unknown assailant opened fire in the area of Block 5, Bottom Close, Wildey. As a result, Kerwin Depeche, 40, also from Wildey, received a gunshot injury to the right foot, while Ryan Quimby, 35, of Bush Hall, St Michael, was shot twice in the left thigh.

Depeche and Quimby were liming by a shop with other men when a van pulled up. The shooter got out and opened fire on the group. The two were transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by private vehicle for medical attention.

Some residents accused police of inadequate patrols and only appearing after the fact, and said they would have to defend the block. (CA)
