Surgery was recommended Monday night for the 28-year old man who was shot in Perry Bay after doctors discovered he had three gunshot entry wounds, but no exit injuries.
This suggested that the bullets were still lodged in his body, thus making his condition quite serious.
That is according to sources close to the probe, who told OBSERVER media that the victim, Alvin Spencer, was shot in the left shoulder, in the right forearm, and the left buttock.
It is alleged that shortly before 8 o’clock Monday night, the victim was about to enter his car which was in the parking lot at Vincent and Millicent business place, when a man in a hoodie jumped out of a vehicle, walked up to him and shot him in the upper body.
Police sources added that after Spencer collapsed, the shooter stood above him and discharged two more rounds, and then fled the scene.
The victim was rushed to hospital shortly afterwards. The police responded swiftly and are continuing the probe.
