Suspects in shooting of Bajan cops found with MAC-10

(Barbados Nation) A high-powered MAC-10 machine gun was among a cache of firearms found at the home of one of two suspects in last Saturday night’s shooting of two police officers.

The two, a 22-year-old from St George and a 19-year-old from Christ Church, were held by a squad of detectives early yesterday.

The weapons were found at the home of the 22-year-old.

“We are actively and vigorously investigating the murders which occurred at Salters, St George, and we are vehement in our resolve to solve these cases,” public relations officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force, Inspector David Welch, told a Press conference yesterday, shortly after breaking the news that lawmen had captured two suspects in connection with the shooting at Navy Gardens, Christ Church, which left two officers with bullet wounds.
