ACP Chester Williams
"There were 2 officers who went to a club on Glitter Street and while inside the club they had a dispute with one Rolito August. That disagreement ended up in the officer allegedly causing injuries to August to the extent of wounding. And August had made a report to the police in San Pedro and that report has been forwarded to my office. It is also allege that after the incident occurred with August that the officers were attacked by patrons of the club and that resulted in officers discharging their weapon. So the report has been obtained and I will be reviewing the file tomorrow and give a directive where that is concerned, but more than likely from what I have read and what I had been briefed the officers should be charged for wounding the least, hopefully sometime next week."
Two off-duty San Pedro police officers allegedly involved in shooting incident
A shooting incident involving two off-duty police officers attached to the San Pedro Police Formation is being investigated by the Professional Standards Branch (PSB). The incident reportedly left 20-year-old Poleto August of the DFC subdivision with a cut wound over his left eye.
The official report says that the incident took place at a local bar located on Glitter Street in San Pedro Town. Investigation reveals that about 12 AM, two off-duty police officers were socializing at the bar when an altercation ensued between August and the officers. August was allegedly injured by one of the officers , and because of that, patrons inside the bar started to harass the officers, who then stepped out of the bar. The officers walked onto the street, and shots were heard, shortly after. When police arrived they found two 9mm shells on the street in front of the bar. The 9mm firearm that was allegedly fired was retrieved for testing.
Minutes after, police, acting on information received, visited the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II where they observed August suffering from an injury to the left eye. His injury was certified as wounding and the matter was then handed over to the PSB for investigation.
