Two cows recovered after shootout near Claremont in St Ann

Two cows were recovered after police came under heavy gunfire from armed men in an area called Ramble in St Ann on Friday (October 2).

Reports from the police are that at about 12:35 am officers intercepted a Toyota Probox motor car travelling  along the Ramble main road which was signalled to stop.

However, the driver refused and sped off, crashing into a section of the service vehicle as he attempted to escape.

Armed men aboard the vehicle opened gunfire at the police, who returned the gunfire.

The vehicle then sped off once more.

The police team pursued it and found it abandoned along a section of the road. When Police officers searched the motor vehicle, they found two calves inside.
