As the Police continue to probe the March 19 shooting of a father and his two-year-old daughter, in Cassada Gardens, reports that the other person might have been shot, as well, are now surfacing.
According to these reports, officers received certain information at about 2:45 a.m. on Monday morning, March 20, and went on duty at Cassada Gardens. There, they met the Pares Village man on the Clare Hall Secondary School playing field in the vicinity of the pan house.
The man was being sought in connection with Sunday night’s shooting.
Reportedly, the man, who was injured, handed over a black-and-silver 9mm firearm, wrapped in a multi-coloured towel, to the police.
Further reports say the suspect had what appeared to be two gunshot wounds to his body: one to the right leg and the other to the left hip.
Officers took him into custody and he was transported to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre by the Emergency Medical Services.
Meanwhile, the Nut Grove man and his toddler daughter who were shot on Sunday night remain in stable condition. The father is receiving dressings, intravenous fluid, antibiotics, and medications for pain, and he is able to walk.
However, the child may require surgery. A source says there is concern about the movement of the child’s right ankle and her condition was to be reviewed on Tuesday, March 21.
