According to Police Public Relations Officer Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, lawmen from Hastings /Worthing Police Station responded to the first incident, which occurred around 1:15 p.m., at Bamboo Avenue, St Lawrence Gap, Christ Church.
“A 62-year-old man reported to the police that he was at home, in his bedroom, when he heard a number of gunshots. As he went to the front of his house he recognised that there were areas [that had been] damaged namely, the front gallery, front door and side step”.
No one was injured as a result of that incident.
Meanwhile Acting Inspector Inniss said police responded to the second shooting, which occurred around 2:50 p.m., at King Street, St Michael.
According to the police spokesman a funeral service was under way in the area when members of the congregation and the general public reported hearing a series of loud explosions, which caused many of them to scamper.
Police were summoned. “Investigations were conducted, the scene identified and processed by the Forensic Department . . . . A number of motor vehicles [were] damaged as a result of the gunshots. Two houses in the immediate area were [also] damaged.
No injuries were reported.
