An unidentified man was shot yesterday after he allegedly attacked police officers in Bagatelle, Diego Martin.

Residents said the man, who appeared to be “mad,” was unknown in the area.

A witness said the man was standing on the main road at about 3 pm when he threw himself in front of a passing car.

The confused motorist immediately made a report to West End Police Station.

Officers visited the scene and found the man lying on the ground with injuries. When they attempted to take him to hospital, however, he allegedly attacked them and was shot.

The man was taken, eventually, to Port-of-Spain hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. Reports said he had to be sedated in order to be treated.

West End police are continuing inquiries.
