Two men were arrested in connection with a shooting in Westridge.

On Monday 6 July at about 21:40 police arrested the two following the incident in Burgandy Street, says spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Williams.

“It is alleged that the suspect arrived at the house with two friends and enquired about the whereabouts of the home owner’s girlfriend. An argument ensued whereafter the suspect threatened the resident with a firearm,” says Williams.

The suspect’s two friends then took a personal computer and a cellphone from the house.

The suspect then started fighting with the resident and assaulted him with a firearm.

“The suspect then ran outside and shot towards the house,” Williams adds.

The resident drew his licensed firearm and returned fire.

Firearm cartridges and a black Mecer monitor were recovered on the scene. A lawful Luger 9mm firearm was also examined.
