Original Post: BREAKING: Reports of shooting during police operation 

"We are still at a very sensitive stage of the operation."

That was the response of public relations officer with the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF), Inspector Rodney Inniss when asked about reports of a shooting in Tudor Bridge, St. Michael today.

While Loop News understands that at least one person was shot during a police operation in that area, Inspector Inniss could not provide further details on the matter at this time:

"Police carried out an operation and a number of persons are in custody. We are still at a very sensitive stage of the operation."
