Weekend Shooting in San Pedro

BDF support has been beefed up on the island

This weekend San Pedro Police had their hands full investigating several cases on the island. On Friday, January 30, police along with the help of the BDF and ADU were conducting an investigation on a drug case where Eric Swan opened fire at the Police and he was shot in the leg and buttocks. Swan was then treated at the San Pedro Poly Clinic by Dr. Javier Zuniga and was later transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
Later that night, gunshots were heard at the Central Park and police were called to the scene, police later arrested Dennis Eiley of San Pedro Town and charged for discharging a fire arm in public.
