Crime Chief Seelall Persaud yesterday said that the suspect who allegedly shot Nigel’s Supermarket owner’s son, Joseph Johnson in January has been released on station bail since the police have been unable to get a statement from the victim.
Contacted, Persaud said that the victim has gone overseas and as such the police have been unable to get a statement from him.
Johnson, 17, was shot to his face while standing outside of the Palm Court Night Club on Main Street on January 18 last.
