A 27-year-old La Romaine man remains warded in a serious condition at hospital after he was shot during a bar brawl yesterday morning.

According to police reports, around 12.10 am Jahdi Williams and his friend Rydel Ramoutar were liming at the Turning Peak Restaurant & Bar along La Plaisance Road, La Romaine, when the incident occurred.

Police said Ramoutar and three men he knew from the area got into an argument, when one of the men struck him on the face with a bottle.

When Williams attempted to intervene, one of the men whipped out a gun and shot him in his back. The suspect ran off and Williams was taken to the San Fernando General Hospital. No one was arrested up to yesterday.

In another incident, Moruga police are searching for three cutlass-wielding bandits who robbed three Princes Town crab catchers on Friday afternoon.

A report stated that Hendrick Rambharack, 60 and Raegan Lalchan, 45, both of Iere Village, Princes Town, along with Terrence Ali, 44, of Garth Road, Williamsville were hunting for crabs along L’Anse Mitan Beach, Moruga, when they were approached by three men armed with cutlasses.

The men robbed them of mobile phones, a watch, $400 and a pair of Adidas sneakers.
