Our local news media reported on a serious firearms incident that occurred on Tuesday 10th May 2022, at Divots Restaurant, at the Belmont Hill Golf Club.

The Royal Gazette reported the following, "  Police confirmed that no one had been injured in the incident and that a firearm had been recovered.

Detective Chief Inspector Sherwin Joseph of the Specialist Investigations Division said: "At 1.10pm we received a report of a firearms incident at Divots Bar and Grill located at Belmont Hills, in Warwick.

"We can confirm a firearm has been recovered and the forensic support unit is processing the scene. No one has been injured as a result of this incident.

"We are appealing to anyone with information to call 211 or the main police number on 295-0011.

"We are particularly interested in anyone who may have seen a male, 6ft 2in, wearing a grey/blue rain coat, grey blue jeans, white high top sneakers riding a black motorcycle and wearing a black helmet."

The Serious Crime Unit attended the scene along with Lawrence Scott, acting National Security Minister and Ianthia Simmons-Wade, area MP.

Mr Joseph said he could not confirm if there had been a failed attempt to discharge a weapon.

But a golfer told The Royal Gazette he encountered a panicked waitress who came out of the restaurant saying a man had tried and failed to discharge the weapon.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, he said: "I’m at Belmont playing and a gunman ran into Divots trying to shoot some young men! Gun jammed, but guy ran off towards Hole 12 & Longford Hill."

He added: "I was playing golf and this is what I was met with."
