A 20-year-old Siparia labourer is warded at the hospital after he was injured in a drive-by shooting near his home, on Sunday.

According to a police report, around 7:30 pm on Sunday 17 January 2021, Urban Estick was sitting on a concrete bench with two friends along Gamble Street, Siparia, when a white Fielder Wagon pulled up.  

Reports are the left backseat passenger pointed a gun through the window and shot at him, and the car sped off.  

Estick reportedly felt a burning sensation to his left leg. He was treated at the Siparia Health Facility and transferred to the San Fernando General Hospital for further medical attention.

Neither the suspects nor the vehicle was found. 

Investigations are continuing.
