UPDATE: A gunshot struck St Andrew’s Primary School during classes on Tuesday morning, but fortunately, no one was injured.
The school’s administration told parents in a circular that a loud piercing sound was heard about 11:50, seemingly from the roof.
A bullet was later found on the floor of the grade 6 classroom, leaving some students unsettled.
The school says if necessary, a counsellor will be engaged to speak with students on Wednesday, but routine classes will continue.
Meanwhile, on the heels of the frightening incident, the management of the nearby Cedar Valley Golf Club says preliminary investigations revealed the bullet was fired from the direction of hole number 9 on the golf course.
Golf Club Chairman, Eugene Silcott says the matter is of serious concern to the management and board of the facility and has been reported to the police.
Silcott could not provide details on the incident as the investigation proceeds, but has urged members and guests to collect a band before entering the course.
He says those without bands will be escorted from the golf course.
MEMO FROM ASSOCIATION CLUB CHAIRMAN
Good afternoon members
We had an issue today where someone fired a gun shot that ended up on St Andrew’s School premises.
The matter was reported to the police and their preliminary investigations proved that the shot came from the direction of the Golf Course from hole no. 9.
This matter is of serious concern for The Management and Board of Cedar Valley Golf Club.
Therefore, I am appealing again to all members and guest to please check the Pro-shop to collect a band before entering the course. The band can be placed anywhere but must be always visible.
We also made some arrangements with the police to do some surveillance for us from time to time and anyone found without a band will be escorted off the premises of Golf Course.
These measures are to protect you the members and visitors alike, so please encourage your golfing buddies to check the pro-shop before starting your game.
