A gunman was shot by a policeman at his business place in Spanish Town, St Catherine last night.

A firearm was recovered at the scene.

The incident occurred around 11:30 on Fairfield Road.

The policeman was not injured.

It is reported that the cop was about to enter his home after closing up his business for the night when two men on a motorcycle rode up.

The pillion reportedly jumped from the bike and approached the policeman, who took evasive action and fired, hitting him.

The rider fled the scene.

The injured man is in hospital in critical condition.

Note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that the man was fatally shot.
