Three men in hospital after shooting incident

POLICE are aggressively investigating the circumstances surrounding a shooting incident that left three men in hospital.

The incident occurred shortly after 3pm on Saturday in southeast New Providence.

Initial reports indicate that the men were standing outside a residence on Sugar Apple Street, Pinewood Gardens when a Japanese vehicle occupied by three men pulled up and opened fire on them.

All of the men were injured and taken to hospital by a private vehicle where their conditions were listed as stable.

Police also report that a suspect was shot by a security guard during an attempted armed robbery on Friday.

Shortly after 9pm, two men armed with shotguns entered a business in southeast New Providence and demanded cash. While inside, the men “engaged” a security guard, resulting in one of the suspects being shot.

The would-be thieves left the business without any stolen property.

Acting on intelligence, officers went to a residence off Alexander Boulevard where they found the weapons along with two men ages, 21 and 20, believed to be responsible for the incident. The suspects were subsequently arrested and the weapons confiscated.

The search is on for a third male who was reportedly shot during the incident.
