While the three LEID Officers were in Bee Hive, enquiring about the owner of a specific house, a white Toyota motorcar approached and the men inside opened fire on the LEID officers.

Shortly after, the motor vehicle drove away, leaving the injured men at the scene.

The GRA officers were subsequently treated for injuries at a private city hospital.
