Bullet hits officer in the left leg while he is installing anti-speed device in Sharjah.
Police are hunting a gunman who shot a policeman in the leg while he installed a speed camera in Sharjah, it has been reported.
According to a report in the National, Nasser Nour Abdullah, 32, was shot in the left leg while fitting the anti-speed device in Al Ittihad Road, near Sahara Mall, at about 4am on Monday.
Officers say they have no idea why Abdullah was shot, but they think the bullet was fired from a building opposite the mall.
“Until the criminal is arrested, only he can tell us why he shot the police officer on duty,” a police spokesman told the paper.
Abdullah was said to be recovering well in Al Qassimi Hospital and would be discharged in the next few days.
Wishing Nasser Nour Abdullah a swift and complete recovery!
Dear Nasser, Our good wishes are with you and your family. Here's wishing you speedy recovery.
Absolutely shocking to hear this sort of news considering its UAE. Wishing Nasser Abdullah a quick recovery and hopefully they find the guy who did this without fear.
Gun rules should be really strict in Dubai so as to avoid these unfortunate incidents, these could lead to serious damage...
Hi Nassar I wish u good health and within very short time Police will find the culprit to the books
