Two wounded in shootout with police


    One man is currently hospitalised under police guard, while another is in custody, following a police-involved shooting in Cunupia.

    Officers were on mobile patrol around 6:34pm on Sunday when they received a report of loud explosions at Mt. Moriah Road.

    When they arrived at the location, they intercepted a black Nissan B13 with two male suspects, who were ordered to exit the vehicle.

    The men allegedly fired at the officers who returned fire.

    The suspects then sped off, leading to a chase.

    The car was later found crashed at a private property along the Longdenville Old Road.

    The suspects, a 28-year-old and a 25-year-old both of Longdenville, were found in the vehicle nursing gunshot wounds about their bodies.

    They were taken for medical treatment, with one of the suspects released into custody yesterday.
