Monday, November 13, 2017

A Chaguanas police officer remains warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex yesterday after he was shot by an unknown assailant at Edinburgh 500, Chaguanas.

A report said around 2 am, the officer only identified as PC Maraj was shot in the back while responding to a report of an intruder on a resident’s premises.

The bullet struck the officer’s bullet-proof vest, investigators said.

Police said Maraj and another officer were searching the area when a man opened fire on them from behind.

The officers returned fire and Maraj was injured.

The suspect fled the scene on foot and was not found by the police.
