Three men are in police in custody in connection with the beating of medical doctor, Dr. Theodore Thomas of Sineku on Saturday night.
The incident took place about 11 p.m. on Saturday after the official opening of carnival in Bataca in Kalinago Territory.
Dr. Thomas sustained injuries to the head and hand.
The police stated that shots were fired during the incident, but are not sure who fired them.
DNO spoke to a source with intimate knowledge of the matter who said that one of the bullets that were fired, grazed Thomas’s scalp.
According to the source, a full assessment of that wound will have to be done, but so far a CT scan has revealed that everything is fine.
Police sources, as well as residents of the area, also stated that one of those arrested sustained a gunshot wound to the ankle and an injury to his face. He was taken for an X-ray.
The police said Thomas was discharged on Sunday from the PMH and they are investigating the cause of the incident.
