Suspect still on the run after high speed pursuit and shots fired at Police

Providenciales, TCI, September 16, 2016 – Detectives are searching for the driver of a brown Nissan March Car with no registration plate that led police on a high-speed chase last night on Providenciales.

Around 10:37 PM (Thursday 16th September 2016) a complainant contacted 911 and stated that Shots were fired at Security Officers posted at the Leeward Gates by someone in the said vehicle. As a result of this, Police Officers responded to the area where they tried to stop a vehicle that matched the description, but the suspect vehicle was able to avoid that attempt. As a result, a high-speed pursuit ensued.

The pursuit, which led police on the Leeward Highway, Behind Glass Shack onto Discovery Bay Road and back on the Leeward Highway came to a stop after the suspect vehicle which was heading Eastbound in a very reckless and dangerous manner on the opposite side of the road, crossed the median and collided with a pole in the vicinity of Caribbean Place. Before fleeing the scene the driver exchanged shots with officers before making good his escape in the thick bushes nearby.  No one was injured during the incident.
