A few minutes after midnight on Monday of this week, information was received of a male person being transported to the San Ignacio Town Hospital with gunshot wounds. Elson Arnold from Unitedville Village had been shot on the lower left side of his back.

Police visited the San Ignacio Town Hospital where Elson Arnold was issued a medical form and he was then transported to the Western Regional Hospital. He was later transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he underwent surgery to retrieve gunshot pellets from his back.

Thus far, Elson Arnold has been able to give a statement to Police where he is alleging that he had been shot by members of the Police Quick Response Team. As a result Police Officers are now being questioned and a report is being compiled, which will be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecution for advice.
