The person on the cycle was one Francis Parham. Both of them managed to jump off the cycle and run in the bush. However the person kept firing shots and injured Francis Parham on the right and left leg. As a result he was admitted to the hospital and he is currently there in a stable condition.
Police say they recovered 2 point 45 expended shells and a live round at the scene.
