Man shot whilst trying to steal from police officer’s vehicle

On Monday, December 31, 2012, at about 12:20 am, officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department responded to an incident which occurred at Bocage, Castries.

On arrival, they received information that a police officer had parked his motor car, registration number PJ 4652, near the Seventh Day Adventist Church at Bocage. Upon returning, he found a man seated in the front of the vehicle attempting to remove the car’s stereo set.

In attempting to apprehend the man, the police officer was assaulted. A scuffle ensued resulting in the suspect being shot in the leg. The suspect then fled the scene. A search was conducted of the area but he wasn’t found.

At about 4 am, officers were summoned to the Accident and Emergency Room of Victoria Hospital. They received information that Shan Lamontagne of Bocage was treated and admitted for gunshot wounds.

Lamontagne is currently in a stable condition at the said hospital.

Investigations into the matter are ongoing.

  1. What an idiot. Guess he didn't realise was a cop's car, or maybe he just didn't expect to get caught. I don't feel sorry for him. Maybe he'll think twice about stealing again. IF YALL WANT FINGS WORK FOR DEM.

    • Anonymous,
      Did you read the article? He did NOT turn himself in. VH called the Police when a he showed up with a bullet wound. Same in the US; the hospital is OBLIGATED to call Law Enforcement when someone is admitted with a bullet wound.
