A bullet from a police officer’s pistol missed its target Thursday afternoon and perforated through a glass window at a building located at Upper Bridge Street, Castries.

Reports are that the police were chasing after a suspect and discharged one round hitting the Mongroo building which houses the Customs Department, Western Union and DHL.

Luckily no was hurt and the suspect was arrested. The police have since replaced the glass.

Police said they are also investigating another incident which occurred at Point Seraphine, in which a police firearm was discharged piercing someone’s wall and destroying a kitchen utensil.

Acting Commissioner of Police Errol Alexander has assured National Security Minister Victor La Cobiniere that he will look into these matters to ensure that the protocols for use of firearms are followed.

  1. It's sad, police officers discharge their firearms in public places and that's it, end of story. That's crazy!! We need tazers to restrain perpetrators as opposed to bullets which are deadly projectile.

  2. SERIOUSLY!! THE POLICE ARE BECOMING TOO FREE WHEN IT COMES TO DISCHARGING THEIR FIRE ARMS. MY GOD!! THEY TAKE IT FOR NOTHING, AS FAR AS I KNOW THAT WEAPON IS ONLY SUPPOSED TO COME OUT IF YOUR LIFE OR THAT OF SOMEONE ELSE IS IN DANGER,NOT AS A SHOW OFF,NOT TO FIRE WARNING SHOTS AND CERTAINLY NOT IN A CONGESTED CITY CONFINES. SO WHAT! IF YOUR CHASING A GUY AND YOU CANT CATCH HIM YOU LET YOUR GUN TAKE OVER....IF YOUR CHASING A GUY YOUR LIFE IS NO LONGER IN IMMEDIATE DANGER. DIDN'T THEY SHOOT SOME INNOCENT PERSON ON A CROWDED BUS SOME YEARS AGO.I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I SEE VERY LITTLE BETWEEN THE STREET GUN THUGS AND THE ARMED COP..........NEITHER ONE HAS ANY DISCIPLINE OR THOUGHT FOR THE PUBLIC WHEN IT COMES TO FIRING THEIR GUNS.
