Man shot dead near Customs House
A suspect bandit was this afternoon killed in Main Street just outside the New Thriving Restaurant and Customs house during an escape bid following a reported robbery. Eyewitnesses are reporting that the suspect who was on a CG motorcycle was chased by a man who shot him several times. It is unclear if the man was a member of the force or a businessman.
What was upsetting to some residents in the area is the length of time the police took to remove the body of the suspect from the scene; they told this newscast that for several minutes the man was lying on the road panting for breath while the police cordoned off the scene.
Up to press time the body was still to be identified.
