Shots were fired during a brazen car chase in Mt Hope on Friday…

Shots were fired after a policeman chased a car along the Eastern Main Road in Mt. Hope causing him to flee from the car and make his escape in an abandoned property laden with overgrown grass on Friday 12th August, 2022.

The incident happened in broad daylight and the suspect, being unable to drive further because of standstill traffic at the intersection, jumped out of the passenger side of the vehicle and fled on foot.

Shots were fired just after 9am, but it remains unclear if the suspect was injured or eventually caught as it took a long while for assistance to arrive at the scene.

The vehicle, one policeman told us, was a white Toyota station wagon reported stolen. The car was late taken to the San Juan Police Station to be processed and responding officers went in search of the presumably armed suspect.
