A man who rushed to the defense of a woman who was being robbed was shot by the alleged assailants.
The unnamed man was taken to Mount St. John’s Medical Centre following an incident at a food shop in Hilda Davis Drive.
Two young men on a bicycle reportedly approached the shop and robbed the female attendant of an undisclosed sum of money along with jewellery.
When she screamed for help a man who was nearby came to her assistance. He is believed to have been shot in the back before the attackers fled the scene.
The man’s injuries are said to be non-life-threatening and he is currently in stable condition in hospital.
Officers investigating the incident are appealing for eyewitnesses or anyone with information to call CID at 462-3913.
