Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith says death threats have been made against the lives of police officers who were involved in the recent shooting incident in Trou Macaque, Laventille.
Police are also now investigating threats of bombs being planted at police stations across the country, following an anonymous call to E999 yesterday.
Relevant agencies were activated following the call and police remain on high alert.
In a press release, Commissioner Griffith confirmed that investigations into the source of these threats are being conducted.
Five persons, including two teenagers, were fatally shot, during an exchange with police officers last week.
The persons were allegedly involved in a robbery in the area.
Police, acting on a tip-off went to the house the men were in and were reportedly greeted by gunfire.
Officers returned fire and all 5 suspects were killed during the shootout.
Entry routes into and out of the area were blocked by rubble and burning tires following the shooting.
Speaking in an interview, Commissioner Griffith said he will not tolerate police carrying out extra-judicial killings.
However, he warned criminals, if they turned their guns on the police, be prepared for the police to retaliate.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (Ag.) Anthony James has been assigned to lead investigations into the incident.
