The scene of the shooting last Wednesday.

A man, well-known to the police, who allegedly engaged the lawmen in gun battle last week and was shot, will be charged soon, a senior police officer has said.

The man, whose name will not be released until he is charged, was shot in the leg after he opened fire on the police, Acting Assistant Commissioner in Charge of Crime and Intelligence, Milton Desir, has said.

The incident occurred on Upper Chaussee Road, Castries (near Grass Street/Marchand Road) just before 12 noon Wednesday, July 8.

Desir said a 9mm pistol with eight rounds of ammunition was recovered.

The man faces firearm and attempted murder charges, Desir said.

He will be charged when he is discharged from hospital – the earliest, on Monday, Desir added.
