Police officers across the country with the sudden spate in criminal activity have thus been under attack in separate incidents over the past week.
According to police reports an unidentified man attacked officers in the La Romaine area on Wednesday with a shovel resulting in him being shot several times and in the process, one officer sustained a gunshot wound.
Report stated that the man was called on to put the shovel down but he charged at the officers causing one of the lawmen to draw his firearm and fire, hitting the attacker in the arm.
In another case, a man whom police tried to apprehend, evaded arrest, and hurled stones at the officers, damaging the police vehicle in the process.
He was later arrested and remains in custody pending several charges.
