Gunmen attack residents in San Juan area of San Pedro

Some men who were on a golf cart in front of a house on Canister Street in the San Juan area of San Pedro are lucky to be alive after gunmen opened fire on them at about 9:30 Thursday night, sending people in the area scrambling for cover.

The gunmen escaped in a boat. No one was hit, but those who were in the area were traumatized and there were bullet holes in several golf carts and homes. Police who processed the scene announced that twelve 9mm expended shells were found

The incident occurred in front of the Campos’ residence, but no one was there at the time.

Witnesses told police that six armed, masked men, wearing black clothing, came from the mangrove area along the lagoon side, to in front of the Campos’ house, where two golf carts, in each of which there were some men, were parked.

The gunmen then began firing at the men.

The police reported that no one was injured in the shooting, which, according to police, was drug-related.
