Man wounded, hospitalised


ST JOHN’S, Antigua – A gunman opened fire in broad daylight in Point yesterday morning, injuring one resident and sending others scampering for cover.

When the commotion settled, Haron “Hammerpump” George was found with a gunshot wound to his right leg. Sources said he was rushed to Mount St John’s Medical Centre, where he underwent emergency surgery.

Police Public Relations Officer Corporal Frankie Thomas said George was in stable condition yesterday and his injury was not life-threatening.

The officer said police had no suspects in custody and he urged witnesses to report any information they had about the latest shooting.

He said residents should call St John’s Police Station at 462-0045 or the nearest police station to file reports.

The incident occurred around 10:20 am on the same spot on lower St John’s Street, Point, where 21-year-old Philmore George was shot on November 7 last year and where cancer patient Dale Mulraine was injured by a stray bullet that pierced his home.

    That anti-crime and gun violence task force is really working well. The goons fear the police so much, they use their weapons during the morning hours with no fear of being stopped or caught. Time for a change in the leadership of the police force…after the election I guess?
