An eyewitness said she had just gone to Grand Bazaar and was parking in front of Ruby Tuesday when the shooting started.

“Well, I remained in my car until I saw them run off southwards. I stayed in the car and then I saw people running in the direction of the two men whom I later learnt were police officers. When I felt it was safe, I came out. It was then I heard the story behind the shooting.

“Luckily, innocent people were not killed. This was so scary. When I thought there was safe, I would have to think again,” she added.

A senior officer of the Northern Division has been assigned to investigate the incident. What is certain is that these two officers face numerous charges arising out of Wednesday night’s incident.
