Cops probing shooting of journalist’s car
Police are on the hunt for a lone gunman on a motorcycle who reportedly opened fire on a vehicle belonging to journalist Travis Chase, 35, on Monday night.
The shooting occurred at around 19:05 hrs at D’Urban and Cemetery Road in Georgetown.
Chase told reporters at the scene that an off-duty cop who witnessed the shooting chased after the gunman but did not manage to apprehend him.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that Chase parked his white Toyota Premio car (PVV 8453) on the western side of the road in front of his house and he went into his house to collect a shopping list from his aunt.
“While doing so he heard several loud explosions suspected to be gunshots, which came from the direction of his car. Chase said that on checking his car, he discovered three holes on the left rear fender, suspected to be as a result of gunshots,” the Police report noted.
Police visited the scene and three 9mm spent shells and one live 9mm round were found at the scene.
“Several persons were questioned as investigations continue,” the release concluded.
Following the incident, Chase posted to his Facebook page: “Pray, too, that we will be rescued from wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer. But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.”
