AK47 found after man dies in shootout with police

AN EARLY morning shoot out with police ended in the death of one man and the arrest of two others this weekend.

Police are still searching for a fourth suspect after gunmen clashed with a team of police officers in the Fort Fincastle and Mason’s Addition area around 3.30am on Saturday.

The officers were responding to reports that gunshots were reportedly heard in the area, and upon arrival, were confronted by four men armed with firearms.

“Quick action by police has resulted in the arrest of two suspects who opened fired at them and the fatal shooting of another suspect who also opened fire on police,” the report said.

Police recovered a Glock Pistol from the deceased, and an AK-47 assault rifle that was dropped by the man who was arrested at the scene.

The two other men fled on foot, but one of them was caught by police.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 919 or Crimestoppers at 328-TIPS (8477) on New Providence or 1-242-300-8476 (Family Islands).

I really hope that the police seriously shoot to kill all these guys they find with illegal firearms, ESPECIALLY if they bold enough to shoot at the police.

I Simply put, I really do not like the turmoil that these young, uneducated, and destructive individual are are causing in the country. Behaviors leading to criminal activities should justify the input of any and all efforts and resources (including the education, legal, and social systems). Yes government, more effort and resources to keep these potentially dangerous elements in school, rather than spending exponentially more to maintain, rehabilitate, and punish these “dumb criminals”. Who compensates the victims for lost of life and properties. Rather than assessing exorbitant taxes and fees, subsequently punishing parents wanting to educate their children, try subsidize and facilitate the change that we expect.
