Cricket entertainer Laban “Gravy” Benjamin who was shot Thursday night, is conscious and alert after undergoing surgery.
Benjamin was shot in the left side of his chest, close to the shoulder.
The shooting victim says three men ambushed and attempted to rob him just as he arrived at his All Saints home around 9:30 pm last night (Thursday.)
He tells OBSERVER Media he fended off his attackers and screamed for help until his neighbours came to his rescue.
The three would-be robbers fired several shots before running away. One of the bullets struck Benjamin.
He says paramedics responded quickly and took him to Mount St John’s Medical Centre.
Police said the three attackers were still on the run up to time of this newscast. Lawmen are urging residents to call the criminal investigations Department at 462-4913 or 462-3914 to report any information they have about the incident.
