Four persons are now hospitalised after being shot last night in Hartford district, Westmoreland.

Police reports are that around 7:30 p.m., persons were at a bar in the community when two persons rode up on a motorcycle and opened gunfire on the patrons.

After gunshots ceased, patrons realised four persons were injured by gunshots. All four were rushed to the hospital immediately.
