Two men have surrendered to the police in connection with the shooting and wounding of Police Sergeant Ricardo Morris.

According to reports, the men, who live in the Sea Lots area, walked into the charge room of the Central Police Station on Friday accompanied by their Attorneys.

Morris, who is assigned to the Belmont Police Station, was with his son at a basketball court at Pioneer Drive, Sea Lots at about 9.30pm last Thursday when he saw a man walking with a high-powered weapon.

Police said Morris, who lives in Central Trinidad, spoke with the gunman and the men began fighting.

During the struggle two other men jumped in to aid the gunman, who had a loaded AR 15 rifle. One of the men took the gun and shot Morris twice in the left hip and left forearm. The trio then ran off with the gun.

Officers from the Guard and Emergency Branch, who were on patrol in the area, took Morris to the hospital where he was treated and warded in a stable condition.

Morris' shooting came two days after another off-duty police officer was ambushed, shot and killed, and a Regiment officer was shot and killed at his home.
