A policewoman assigned to Woodbrook Police Station was shot in her left palm and right shoulder on Tuesday night while returning to her Mamoral home. PC Crystal Ross Abraham was sitting in the front passenger seat of her husband’s blue Hilux van at 10.45 pm, when shots were fired.
Abraham and her husband Andy were heading home when they saw a man walk out from some bushes and point a gun in their direction. The 32-year-old officer was taken to the Chaguanas Health Centre and transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC) in Mt Hope where she was treated.
Sources said that investigators are working on information that the shooting may be linked to a land dispute. Assistant Commissioner of Police Irwin Hackshaw said that investigators are in search of a suspect whose identity and home address is known to them.
