A 20-year-old Siparia labourer was injured in a drive-by shooting near his home on Sunday.

Police said at around 7.30 pm Urban Estick was sitting on a concrete bench at Gamble Street, Siparia, with two men when a white station wagon stopped near them and a backseat passenger pointed a gun through the window and shot him before the car sped off.

Estick was treated at the Siparia Health Facility then transferred to the San Fernando General Hospital where he remains.

Police have been searching for the suspects and the vehicle.
