Police are on the hunt for two men, one who allegedly dropped a fire arm while escaping after seeing ranks on a mobile patrol.
According to police report, ranks were on patrol on Saturday at around 17:00hrs on Aubrey Barker Road when they heard a loud explosion what sounded like gun shot. As a result, the ranks went through Penny Lane and into a street.
Police then observed two men exiting a car; one allegedly had a gun in his hand. Upon seeing the ranks, the car drove away, while the men ran into a yard. Ranks gave chase, but the men escaped. Police then recovered a Glock 17 pistol with four live rounds in chamber which was said to have been dropped by the suspect.
Investigations are ongoing.
