One Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol was seized by the police in Irwin, St James last evening.

Reports from the Granville Police are that about 9:10 p.m., a team of officers was on patrol on Hurlock main road when they signaled the driver of a Toyota Corolla motorcar to stop, the driver complied, however, while approaching the vehicle; men aboard opened gunfire at them and sped away.

The vehicle subsequently crashed minutes later and the men made good their escape. A search of the vehicle revealed the weapon containing six 9mm cartridges, several cell phones, a box containing bottles of liquor, and cash among other items.

Investigations continue.
