The shooting of a police officer while he slept in Calliaqua on Monday brought to two the number of lawmen attacked and shot in the past three months.
Police are investigating the shooting of Sergeant Jimmy Jack, who is assigned to the Calliaqua Police Station.
The shooting, by an unknown assailant, occurred at the police house in that town.
Jack received a bullet wound to the right section of his abdomen and injuries to fingers on his left hand, police say.
He is in hospital and investigations are continuing.
On June 13, Police Constable Jolaine Jack was shot in Kingstown as a robber relieved a postal worker of EC$100,000 in cash.
That officer also survived his injuries.
Also, in July another police officer was shot and injured, reportedly accidentally by another colleague.
