Two suspected armed robbers have this afternoon shot a policeman at Lapaz in Accra–and the injured policeman has been rushed to a hospital.
The shot police officer was part of a team who were on an operation to stop an armed robbery that was taking place at Palmas, a popular restaurant in Accra.
An eyewitness who saw the shooting described it as an “action movie.”
“The police who was part of the team chasing the robbers went closer to them and they shot him three times. He dropped on the floor but I cannot tell if he is dead” he added.
After the shooting, the robbers abandoned their motorbikes and snatched an ash Hyundai Sonata in the full glare of the public and headed towards Kasoa in the Central region.
