A 30-year old man is dead following a shootout with police on Tuesday morning.
Around 12:36a.m, officers visited Dinsley, Tacarigua after reports of a robbery in the area. The officers followed the car suspected to be used in the theft but soon lost it. They found it an hour later close to UWI. But when they told the driver to stop, the passenger in the vehicle fired several shots at the officers.
The officers returned gunfire and hit Damion George, the passenger, several times. George remained in the car while the driver escaped on foot. Police found a pistol in the car.
They are continuing investigations.
George hailed from Diego Martin.
