St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A Sandy Point man wounded earlier this week when he was struck in the face with a gun, escaped injury on Friday night when an assailant opened fire on him while he was on the veranda of his Fig Tree area home.
Acting Commander for District B Superintendent Travis Rogers said Saturday that a suspect had been charged in the wounding incident that took place on Tuesday morning.
“We have since arrested Chino Evans of Fig Tree, Sandy Point and he was charged [for Assault with a Firearm and Battery] and is now remanded at Her Majesty’s Prison,” Superintendent Rogers said Saturday.
He told WINN FM that on Friday night sometime between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. the victim of the Tuesday incident CJ White, was shot at while he was on the veranda of his home.
According to the Superintendent, the shots were fired from some nearby bushes.
“I cannot say at this time…if [the two incidents] are connected but we are investigating.”
Superintendent Rogers said that it was also too soon to determine whether the attacks on White were in any way related to shooting incident that took place in another area of Sandy Point on Monday night.
In that matter police responded to a report of gunfire in the area of Main and Hedgerow Streets. Shells from two different calibers of weapon were found, but there were no reports of gunshot injuries at any medical facility in the hours following.
