On January 25, Constables Hannaway, Pinder and Salina, all attached to the Maloney Crime Patrol Unit, responded to a report of a man armed with a gun, being observed at Building #19, Maloney Gardens.
Upon checking, the officers observed a male suspect attempting to tuck a firearm into his waist. PC Hannaway chased and held the man.
While attempting to disarm the suspect, a struggle ensued forcing PCs Salina and Pinder to intervene. During the incident, a crowd of approximately 30 people gathered and started throwing missiles at the officers.
As the officers struggled with the suspect, he got a hold of PC Hannaway’s firearm and shot him in his right thigh. PC Hannaway was able to retrieve his firearm shortly after. At that point, the crowd had grown to about 50 people and PC Hannaway was forced to seek medical attention, while PC Salina continued his struggle with the suspect.
A female relative of the suspect then intervened and attempted to pull PC Salina’s hand away from the suspect. She allegedly choked and assaulted the officer, while two other male members of the crowd joined in and managed to pull the male suspect away from the grasp of PCs Salina and Pinder. They escaped. The officers had to seek medical attention following the incident.
Tyrell Wilson was arrested at his home on and Reanne Wilson surrendered to officers of the Maloney Police Station on Sunday. Rendon Wilson was arrested while seeking medical attention at the Eric Williams Medical Complex on Sunday.
Warrants were issued for other people involved in the incident.
