Businessman shoots back, two bandits hit

Three suspects have been arrested in connection with a foiled robbery attempt at a business place in the Port of Spain district this afternoon.

Reports indicate that the 53-year-old proprietor of Sin Kiu Trading, George Street, Port of Spain was at his business place around 1 pm when two gunmen entered and announced a robbery.

The businessman became fearful for his life, drew his licensed firearm and shot at the men, wounding two of them.

One of the suspects dropped a firearm before they both ran off.

Officers immediately responded and conducted extensive searches in the George Street Plannings and bushy areas in the vicinity of the scene for the assailants.

The three suspects were subsequently found and arrested.

One Ruger pistol was recovered from the scene of the shooting.

Investigations are continuing.
