Shots ring out, injured man blames a nail


Nine shots were heard, a man is believed to have been shot on his left foot, but police say that the man in question says he was cut by galvanize and poked by a nail.{{more}}

This stems from a situation that took place in Paul’s Avenue last Tuesday evening at around 9 p.m.

Information reaching SEARCHLIGHT indicates that three men were standing in an area in Paul’s Avenue when two men wearing jackets with hoods approached them and opened fire.

The police are believed to have recovered five spent shells from the scene, but have hit a snag in their investigations.

This is because the believed victim refutes suggestions that he was shot; therefore, it sounded like a gunshot, it looked like a gunshot, but it was really a nail poke.
