25th July Two Men Shot & Injured on Court Street: Investigation Underway [Updated]

July 26th 2021 - Around 11:20 last night, Sunday 25th July, police responded to reports of several gunshots fired in the Court Street area Pembroke.

 

Upon arrival officers were informed that two men had been shot near the Spinning Wheel night club. Both victims were transported via private vehicles to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where at last check, they were receiving treatment for their injuries, the extent of which are unknown at this time.

 

Court Street, between Elliott and Dundonald Streets, remained cordoned off as the scene was forensically processed.

 

Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford said, “To think that earlier today there was an expression of real community spirit with this same area set up as a street market with people from not just Pembroke, but other areas as well, visiting to patronise the various vendors and spend quality time with their families. Now we’re dealing with this senseless act of violence.”

 

Mr. Glasford urged anyone with information on this incident to use one of the many options available to the public for providing information which could assist in the arrest of those responsible for this incident.

 

You can provide that information by calling 211, the main police number 295-0011, the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739 or, the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477.

 

Update: Police can confirm two 19-year-old males from Devonshire, sustained non-life threatening injuries as a result of a shooting which occurred around 11:20pm on Sunday 25th July, 2021, on Court Street, Pembroke.


Both men were attended to for their injuries at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and have since been released.
