Three Police ranks attached to the Alberttown Police Station who were on patrol duties in Georgetown on Thursday, May 19, 2022, were shot at by a teenager on a motorcycle.
The ranks were on motorcycle patrol duty at about 20:45 hours, on Oronoque Street, Queenstown, Georgetown, when they observed four suspicious-looking males—(two on a red motorcycle and two on a black motorcycle)—heading in the same direction on the street.
Upon seeing the ranks, the four males immediately turned around and began proceeding south on Oronoque Street. The ranks gave chase, during which the pillion rider on the red motorcycle pointed an object in the direction of the ranks after which a loud explosion, suspected to be a gunshot was heard.
One of the ranks who was armed with a 9mm pistol immediately discharged a single round in their direction. The ranks managed to apprehend the two males on the black motorcycle—a 17-year-old from Tucville Squatting Area, Georgetown, and a 15-year-old from South Sophia, Georgetown.
A search was subsequently conducted on the suspects and a suspected air-gun was found on the 17-year-old. A suspected gunshot wound was also seen on the 17-year-old’s right lower foot. He was escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation to seek medical attention.
The 15-year-old lad is presently in custody assisting with investigations.
