One man was shot in the chest and another one struck in the head with a gun during an apparent burglary at Lammings, St Joseph early Saturday.

The victims – 61-year-old Harry Clement and 56-year-old Hugh Kellman – were both treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and discharged following the 2 a.m. attack.

Clement said he was lying in bed when three masked man entered his home. A struggle reportedly ensued between him and one of the alleged robbers before he was shot, while his friend Kellman, who was said to be in the living room watching the World Cup cricket match between Pakistan and South Africa, was struck in the head.

Within a split second I [was] knocked out,” Kellman told reporters.

Both men are admittedly still shaken by the incident.

Pointing to bloodstains and bullet holes in his home, Clement said the intruders fired several gunshots, one of which passed through his chest and grazed his arm.

Though the robbers made off with a case with money and clothes, he said he was happy to be alive.

Lawmen are investigating.

    The economy of the island with the cost of living is getting higher and higher—the price of fuel, gas food. The educational system is failing our children. This reality as it is only leads to violence
