July 23, 2020- Two policemen attached to the Constant Spring Police Station were shot and injured on Constant Spring Road in the vicinity of the service station across from CVM TV on Thursday, July 23.


Reports are that about 1:30 a.m., the Police were on patrol in the area when they observed a white Honda Civic motorcar parked on the roadway. The team then approached the vehicle and attempted to make enquires when the men immediately opened gunfire on the Policemen, hitting them both-one in the left leg and the other in the upper body, before attempting to flee the scene.


The injured officers managed to return gunfire and the car subsequently crashed in the vicinity of Island Dairy. One of the armed men ran from the vehicle and the other was held and observed to have a gunshot wound.  All three persons were taken to the hospital where the unknown assailant was pronounced dead while undergoing treatment.
