A Siparia man escaped injury after being shot at on Tuesday.

Guardian Media understands that the victim, 26-year-old Shaquille Forbes, reportedly was shot at by someone he knows.

Forbes told police that around 10 am on Tuesday June 15th, he was standing on the road near a gateway off Thompson Trace, Quarry Village, Siparia, when a white car stopped near him. The front passenger, whom he recognised, reportedly pointed a gun at him. Scared for his life, Forbes dropped to the ground. He then reportedly heard three loud explosions before the car sped off.

PC Nanan of the Siparia CID is investigating.
