An unidentified man was fatally shot after he and another assailant allegedly attempted to rob a female Police Officer of her motor car at the intersection of Old Hope Road and Caledonia Road, in St Andrew yesterday.

Reports from the Cross Roads Police are that about 9 p.m., the police woman stopped at a traffic light when two men, one armed with a rifle and another with a pistol attempted to steal her motor car. 

The gunmen blocked the vehicle and ordered her out. She responded and challenged the gunmen. 

During the incident, one of the gunmen was shot and injured. 

The female cop, reportedly to preserve her life, left the scene without retrieving the weapon. The injured man was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead while undergoing treatment. 

The Inspectorate of the Constabulary  and the Independent Commission of Investigations are investigating.
