Trinidad Express:-  An off duty police officer shot two men who attempted to rob him of his vehicle on Friday night.

The senior officer, who is attached to the San Fernando CID, was visiting relatives at New Haven Street, Marabella, when he was ambushed at around 7.15pm.

Police said the suspects walked up to the officer’s Nissan AD wagon as he parked on the roadway.
