Armed robbers shoot policeman; snatch car at Lapaz

Two suspected armed robbers have reportedly shot a police officer who led a team to stop their robbery operations at Lapaz near popular restaurant, Las Pamas in Accra.

According to reports, the robbers who were on motorbikes shot the unidentified police officer three times at the busy area.

An eyewitness in an interview on Adom News Thursday said the incident was like an action movie.

He noted that the masked men, armed with locally manufactured guns opened fire which brought activities at the very busy area to a halt.

“The police who was part of the team chasing the robbers went closer to them and they shot them three times. He dropped on the floor but I cannot tell if he is dead” he added.

The armed robbers he indicated, abandoned their motorbikes and snatched an ash Hyundai Sonata in the full glare of the public.

The eyewitness said the armed robbers after the operation headed toward Kasoa in the Central region.

Meanwhile, the police man who sustained gunshot wounds was rushed to the hospital by some residents in the area.
