Trinidad & Tobago: Princes Town robbery suspect killed by cops

A suspect in an attempted robbery was fatally wounded after shooting at police officers in Princes Town on Monday.

Around 9:10 am yesterday, a proprietor of a jewellery store at Cacique Street, Princes Town, was conducting sales, when she was approached by two suspects wearing face coverings, who announced a hold up and proceeded to smash a glass case with a hammer.

An alarm was raised and the suspects fled on foot without taking any items.

A party of police officers under Sgt Mohammed of the Princes Town CID, responded quickly and chased the suspects who were fleeing along Bonanza Street.

The two suspects boarded a silver AD Wagon driven by another man and escaped.

However, a broadcast was sent and the vehicle was later intercepted in a bushy area at Gajadhar Lands, where the occupants abandoned the vehicle and fled into the bushes in different directions.
