Suspect shot by police

Police are investigating a shooting involving one of their own.

The lawmen were on mobile patrol duty in Wilkinson Road, Richmond, Black Rock, St Michael, at about 3.55 pm yesterday when they encountered a man acting suspicious.

However, when they alighted from their vehicle and challenged the man, he reportedly drew a gun and ran.

According to police, the suspect also pointed the firearm in the direction of a pursuing police officer, who fearing for his life, discharged his service firearm.

However, the suspect escaped capture in 2nd Avenue Richmond.

The police subsequently received information that led them to the hospital where the suspect was awaiting treatment for a gunshot injury. The injury is non-life threatening.

      Fact is any where in the world when a person pulls a gun on a police officer they can expect to be shot at… just don’t threaten a police officer and you won’t be shot!

    You draw a firearm in the presence of another armed man, far more a police officer, far more point it at them, you have just signed your death warrant. Justifiably so !

    Wid all the crime we have going on,gang shootings,all kinds of murders,as far as I am concerned I think its time the police just leave it,because when they do their damned and when they don’t its the same thing,shoot a criminal is a problem at this point in time and crime,I fed up by the fact that I don’t feel safe a lot of times,nowadays I get the impression that bajans just prefer to sit and complain, and all ah we children is de best,people plz ,I fed up aid all due police complaints, why wanna doh police wanna communities wanna self

    But rico… They shot a man that Wå§ running away… What excatly were they so afraid of!??? How do you fear a gun that is not being pointed at you… How do u fear a gun that is being carried in the other direction? This aint chuck norris we talkin bout , this is a regular nigga that was running away and got shot. Is that enough common sense for you?
