The man involved in last week’s shooting incident with police has been identified as 25-year-old Renaldo Hope of Joes River, St Joseph.

According to a release, police were on patrol in the area of Bowling Alley, heading towards Horse Hill, when they encountered a man being chased by another “armed with a silver-coloured revolver”.

“The police exited the vehicle and identified themselves as armed police to the armed man and instructed him to drop the firearm,” the release said, but the man, who was later identified as Hope, “pointed the gun in the direction of one of the police officers”.

The officer fired his weapon and Hope was shot in the right hand and right leg.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance for treatment.

Lawmen are appealing to anyone who can provide any information to assist with these investigations to contact District C Police Station at 416-8200, Police Emergency 211, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477 (TIPS) or any police station. (PR/SAT)
