On Tuesday, police recaptured a burglary suspect who escaped lawful custody at the Micoud police station, shooting him in the leg in the process.
The suspect, identified as Randy Charles, was awaiting transfer to the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) after a court appearance on the burglary charge.
Officers said they found him in a house at Cul de Sac, Castries, and shot him in the leg when he approached them aggressively and failed to comply with orders to cease.
Charles was reported in stable condition at the OKEU Hospital after the incident at about 10:30 am on Tuesday.
Police plan to charge the house owner for harbouring a fugitive.
