National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang
National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang has said he is satisfied with Monday's quick response of the police in intercepting gunmen near the Trafalgar Road/Hope Road intersection.
The men, who had earlier murdered a businessman on Old Hope Road, were tracked in their vehicle to the intersection.
The men then engaged the police in a shootout.
Dr. Chang said the work of the police quick response team was "excellent" as communication, surveillance, mobility and the training of the officers came into play.
Two of the three gunmen were killed in the shootout.
The police say the third suspect escaped on a passing truck.
