Residents open fire on masked men

Residents open fire on masked men

St. John’s — Cedar Valley residents confronted and opened fire on masked men seen trespassing on a property around 9:20 a.m. yesterday.

Although the intruders escaped, seemingly unhurt, residents reported they were satisfied a break-in and possible robbery were averted.

Head of the Cedar Valley Neighbourhood Watch group Terence Nunes said the community would not let thugs invade their privacy and hold them at ransom.

“We are not going to sit by and do nothing. We all have to work together, and look out for each other. It’s the only way to protect our communities. [Yesterday] we immediately called the police, organised our group and went after them,” Nunes said.

One resident reported guard dogs at several homes became agitated and began barking, alerting people to the intruders’ presence.

The two men reportedly turned their attention to another yard and again, dogs in the area alerted a homeowner to the men’s activities.

A licensed firearm holder who lives in the area, reacted by firing two shots at the two masked men, who appeared to be in their 20s.

The trespassers fled and were later seen in the vicinity of the Cedar Valley Golf Course. They then ran into the nearby bushes.

Both men wore white masks. One was dressed in a red tee-shirt and the other wore a black tee-shirt.

Police, in addition to members of the community, swarmed the area in search of the men, who were still on the run, up to last evening. (Antigua Observer)
