A 17-year old is expected to appear in the Court following his release from hospital after he tried to shoot a 19-year old teenager. Instead, the weapon discharged and he was shot in the leg.
Reports indicate that around 12:30p.m on Sunday, the 17-year-old confronted the 19-year old with the gun. Sources say he intended to shoot the teen but a struggle ensued, during which time the 17-year-old was shot with his own weapon.
He admitted himself to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, where officials reported the crime. He is warded under heavy police guard until he is released.
The incident occurred at Chrissie Terrace, Enterprise.
