BANDITS SHOOT AT TOBAGO POLICE
Tobago police are in search of two suspects who allegedly shot at two off-duty police officers yesterday.
According to reports, the incident occurred around 1.30 pm at Sandy Hill Trace, Lambeau, near Daniel’s Den Apartments.
According to reports, Supt Shirley Stanley–Caruth had just returned from doing a transaction at the Auchenskeoch Branch of Republic Bank and went to visit PC Larry Daniel at his Lambeau residence when two men pulled up in a silver Nissan Tiida vehicle and opened fire on them.
The officers were not hit and Daniel, using his personal firearm returned fire, striking one of his attackers in the leg.
T&T Guardian understands that the men escaped in a vehicle registration number PDH 5313 which was later found, parked at Tank Road, Signal Hill, a nearby village, with traces of blood inside.
Police sources believe that Stanley–Caruth may have been followed from the bank.
Approximately 18 spent shells were recovered at the scene of the shooting.
Up late yesterday, no one was held in connection with the crime.
Scarborough CID is continuing investigations.
Anyone with information is asked to contact 800- TIPS, 555 or the Scarborough CID at 639–2515.
