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.
