Two police officers were shot on Wednesday when the pistol operated by a security guard was accidentally discharged.

Around 9:00a.m, a female security guard who is employed at the Ministry of Agriculture, was about to exit a room at the Central Police Station in Port-of-Spain when the gun went off.

One police officer got shot in the right leg, while the other suffered injuries to her stomach from bullet fragments.

The police officers were taken to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital for treatment.

One of the officers was treated and discharged while the other is warded in a stable condition.

While police saw no motive for the shooting and will treat it as an accident, they will investigate the matter.
