Attorney-at-Law Martin George is commending the decisive actions taken by police officers to shoot Christopher Reid who was seen placing a gun to the head of his estranged common-law wife on Duke Street in Port of Spain on Wednesday.
According to reports, during the fight Mr. Reid pulled out a gun and placed it to his common-law wife’s head and was shot and killed by a police officer who was passing in an unmarked vehicle.
Mr. George told Good Morning Trinidad and Tobago that the woman’s life was at risk and the police officers did their job.
“I think that the police officers did the best that they could in the circumstances. You can’t have a scenario where someone is with a loaded weapon and making threats or making threats to person in public, on a crowded street, on a busy day, and police officers sit by and not take any proactive stance.”
