A man was shot multiple times as he was riding his bicycle on Monday night in Carapo.

Police say they believe the shooting was linked to a construction contract.

According to a police report, at about 10:45 pm, the 36-year-old man was riding his bicycle along Winston Mulligan Drive in Carapo, when two gunmen confronted him and opened fire.

The victim was shot four times in the shoulder and the leg.

The gunmen then escaped. The victim was taken to hospital, where he was treated.

Investigators believe this to be a second shooting incident, as gang warfare between the Rasta City and Muslim gangs heats up, allegedly due to a multi-million contract in the area.

This latest shooting occurred on the first day since construction activity resumed after the Governemnt’s easing of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

Investigations are ongoing.
