Two police officers are nursing gunshot injuries following an incident yesterday at San Juan Police Station.
The two officers have been identified as WPC Roxanne Sealy and SRP Bernard.
According to reports, officers at the police station heard loud explosions at about 8.30 a.m. yesterday and, upon investigating, they observed two officers bleeding from what appeared to be gunshot injuries.
They were both rushed to Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, where they were treated.
Bernard injured the middle finger on his left hand, while Sealy was injured in her upper torso. Bernard was eventually discharged, but Sealy's injuries are said to be more serious.
Up to press time last night, she was at the hospital, with the bullet still lodged in her.
She was expected to undergo emergency surgery to have it removed, as she suffered “serious damage” to her internal organs.
