A man, only indentified as G-Man and who caused residents of Johnsonville, including its Land Commissioner Michael Taylor to run for dear life last Saturday is yet to be arrested, according to the Liberia National Police.
The suspect is said to be an ex-police officer, who was assigned with the Police Support Unit (PSU), but was dismissed when he was involved in an armed robbery, a police source said.
The incident occurred when mourners gathered at the Johnsonville cemetery to bury a relative.
The ex-police officer (G-man), reportedly drove a green jeep with siren blasting, to the grave site and reportedly shot four rounds from his .45 revolver pistol, scaring the mourners and other residents.
“Empty shells from the pistol are also with the police,” an insider disclosed.
Police spokesman Sam Collins confirmed the shooting incident but said the unidentified person is being sought by police. He expressed the hope that police would apprehend the suspect.
He disclosed that following the incident, an ex-police officer was arrested, but investigation later exonerated him because he had “a toy gun.”
The incident occurred around 2 p.m., according to our source. Suspect G-Man was dismissed in 2013.
“The shooting was so intense that Johnsonville Land Commissioner, Michael Taylor, along with scores of other residents ran for dear life,” our source said.
