A Dominican national was shot Friday night during a drug bust at sea, law enforcement sources have told the Times.
The incident occurred some time before 9 pm after a boat with two engines was intercepted about 2.5 nautical miles off Vieux Fort, according to reports.
It is reported that there were two individuals aboard the vessel.
They were identified as Brian Mayers of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Alick Puyol of Dominica.
Puyol sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder during the police operation and was admitted to St Jude Hospital, law enforcement sources told the Times.
Police recovered about 900 pounds of cannabis from the vessel, according to reports.
