In their search, they came across a young man fitting the description of the suspect and confronted him. During the intervening process, a round was discharged from the shotgun in possession of a member of the patrol, hitting the suspect to his face and body.

  1. What do you want the youngsters to do the useless incompetent dictator promised jobs where are the jobs ????Who would want to come and invest in this crime invested hell hole –since these dummies took over everything has gotten worse-

  2. Interesting… a group of guards and one had to shoot a young person who fit the discription of a suspect in an unarmed robery…no word of the ‘suspect’ having a weapon… in his face and body in order to apprehend him. The jobless youths are once again the ones to lose the most.
