December 29, 2021 | 3 Comments

[Updated] The police are responding to an incident in the Mount Hill area in Pembroke this evening [Dec 29], with multiple police vehicles and officers on scene, and crime scene tape visible.

Unofficial reports suggest that what sounded like gunshots were heard in the area. Confirmed details are limited at this time, however we will update as able.

Update 9.50pm: Police confirm there was a shooting and that a 21-year-old man was injured.

A police spokesperson said, “Shortly before 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday 29th December 2021, police received a 911 call reporting gun shots heard in the area of Mount Hill Road, Pembroke.

“Police attended the scene which has now been cordoned off while it is being forensically processed.

“Early indications are, a twenty-one-year old male sustained a gunshot wound and was transported via private vehicle to King Edward Hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment for his injuries.

“Traffic controls have been set up at junctions in the surrounding area and there will be delays in residents getting to their homes.

“We thank you for your patience and understanding. Meanwhile, anyone who may have any information on this incident is asked to call 211, the main police number, 295-0011, or, Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.”

This marks the second person with a gunshot injury today, following after a male was stopped by police on Middle Road in Warwick  at around 1.00 this morning as he made his way to the hospital “with a gunshot wound to his leg,” which also followed after a confirmed firearms incident at around 10pm last night in Pembroke.

    This BS is getting outta hand. Find them, prosecute them, then remove them from society for life. They don’t deserve to walk amongst normal law abiding citizens

    And they just renewed gang coordinator’s contract. It’s time he provides results and not try to relocate the culprits.
