However, there have been no reports of how this interaction went and, allegedly, the officer is still on active duty.

There have not been any reports of charges proffered being against him, either.

Reportedly, he told officers he had witnessed an unknown male exiting a vehicle and shooting at the tyres of another vehicle at about 9 a.m. on December 3, in the vicinity of Emerald Cove.

As a result of the report, officers from the “B” Division visited the scene.

Upon their arrival, they reportedly observed a white Toyota Mark X motorcar, registration A 43684, parked off the northern side of the road and facing east.

The officers reportedly examined the vehicle and noted several bullet holes in the left rear door of the car, near the handle.

Apparently, there were several spent shells on the ground on the southern side of the motorcar.
