St. Maarten – The police force began investigating what may have been a shooting incident in front of the government administration building on Thursday. The Police Spokesman Ricardo Henson says that a female officer who is assisting with training recruits reported the incident and is the victim.

The female officer told her colleagues that she heard what sounded like a gunshot at 3:45 p.m. and then felt a projectile pass close to her face. Officers from the forensics department combed the scene and the police plan to question potential witnesses as part of their investigation.

“I don’t know why anyone want to harm her. It is sad and serious that people are targeting officers who are busy protecting lives on a daily basis,” Henson said.
