WATCH: Non-fatal shooting along Edward Seaga Highway
Several police officers and civilians lined the Edward Seaga Highway where police say a non-fatal shooting occurred on Saturday.

KINGSTON, Jamaica — There was a non-fatal shooting along the Edward Seaga Highway Saturday afternoon.

The constabulary’s Corporate Communication Unit confirmed the shooting but had no details.

A video making the rounds on social media showed the police lifting a bloodied and injured man into the back of a pickup truck. Several vehicles stopped along the major thoroughfare, and one vehicle appeared to have run off the road and was stuck in a ditch.

Several police officers were on the scene.

More details will be available later.
