A 20-year-old policeman was accidently shot in his lower abdomen early this morning by a colleague while in the armoury of the Tactical Services Unit, Eve Leary.
A police source told Stabroek News that Constable Christopher Albert was accidently shot once by another rank as he was placing rounds into his .38 revolver. The men were about to go on duty from 7am. The rank was immediately rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital and is in a stable state. The policeman who fired the shot is currently under close arrest.
