A 30 year old man was killed in a high-speed chase and shootout with police along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway this morning.
Around 12:30am, officers received a report of a housebreaking and robbery in Dinsley Village, Tacarigua.
Less than an hour later, officers spotted a car fitting the description in their report, in the vicinity of The UWI St Augustine Campus.
An attempt was made to intercept the vehicle, leading to the chase and shootout which ended near Grand Bazaar.
One of the suspects managed to escape, while the other – Damion George of Diego Martin – was found suffering from gunshot wounds.
He later died at hospital.
A gun was reportedly recovered at the scene.
