Two men are being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for gunshot injuries, one of them in critical condition, but QEH management have sought to make it clear there was no shooting on the hospital compound.

The two men were shot at My Lord’s Hill, St. Michael and were transported by private vehicle to the QEH where the critically injured man underwent emergency surgery.

Rumours swirled that there was also a shooting at the hospital but Executive Chairman of the QEH Juliet Bynoe-Sutherland tells Starcom Network News that the rumour appears to have been triggered by the police response to the arrival of a suspicious vehicle on the compound of the QEH.
