Police on ‘serious’ manhunt for man who shot 4 officers at Tramol Junction
The Accra Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service has launched a manhunt for a middle-aged man who shot at four of its officers on patrol duty over the weekend.
Acting Public Relations Officer of the Command Victor Kofi Dosoo assured that the gunman would definitely be arrested and prosecuted.
Speaking on 3FM‘s Sunrise on Monday, Chief Inspector Kofi Dosoo – in narrating how the incident unfolded in Sukura – said the police stopped short of shooting at the escaping man as a result of the densely populated nature of the area.
He said it all began on Saturday night when the man took to his heels after spotting the patrol team at Tramol Junction in Sukura.
After giving him a hot chase, the man removed a pistol and fired at the officers, injuring all four, Chief Inspector Kofi Dosoo said.
Some civilians also suffered various degrees of injury from the gunshots, he continued.
Three of the police officers have, however, been treated and discharged.
A sergeant among the three is, however, still on admission.
“As a matter of fact, he is responding to treatment,” he said.
