Six In Hospital After Two Shooting Incidents

SIX men are in hospital after two separate shooting incidents over the weekend, police said.

The first shooting occurred just before midnight on Saturday.

According to police, three men were standing in front of a home located on Sutton Street off Kemp Road when the occupants of a grey Honda Torino pulled up and fired several shots at them before speeding off.

The men were rushed to hospital where two of them remain in serious condition and the other is in stable condition.

Then shortly after midnight on Sunday, a group of men were standing on Fowler Street off East Street when several men in a vehicle pulled up and fired several shots at them before speeding off.

Three of the men were shot and taken to hospital where two of them remain in serious condition and the other in stable condition.

Police are also looking for the suspects behind two armed robberies.

Shortly before 8am on Saturday, a man was standing in front of his home off JFK Drive when a man armed with a handgun approached and robbed him of cash before fleeing on foot.

Then shortly after noon, a woman was about to make a deposit at a bank located on Poinciana Drive when two men armed with handguns robbed her of the deposit bag containing a large amount of cash and her wallet containing cash and personal documents. The suspects then fled the scene in a blue four-door Honda Accord car.

Police also arrested a man on Saturday for drug possession.

Reports are that shortly after 6pm, officers from the Mobile Division were on routine patrol on Thompson Lane off East Street, where they saw a suspicious looking man standing in front of a home. The officers conducted a search of the man and uncovered 100 small foil wraps with marijuana in his possession. The man was then arrested.

Investigations into all of these matters continue.
