On-duty police personnel turned the tables on a group of suspects in an attempted drive-by shooting near the Spanish Town courthouse a short while ago, shooting one of them.

It is reported that the intended target was a man who was slated to make a court appearance in the capital, but the shooters missed.

Police within proximity of the old courthouse responded almost immediately and a chase ensued.

In their attempt to flee, the suspects who operated a white Probox motorcar, crashed into another car.

The men then alighted from the vehicle and ran into nearby bushes as the police pursued.

Three of the men managed to escape while the other was shot. He has since been taken to hospital.
