DNO: As bus drivers continue to protest over what they consider to be unfair conditions and a lack of assistance from government, at least one individual has been shot by police, according to reports.

Information reaching Dominica News Online (DNO) indicates that a rubber bullet was used in the incident but one police officer told DNO that the bullet may have caused some injury to the bus driver because of the short distance from which it was fired.

The incident occurred close to the twin bridges in the vicinity of Auto Trade at Canefield, earlier this morning.

An eye witness told DNO that a police officer entered the bus of one of the protestors and attempted to move the vehicle which resulted in a scuffle between police officers and bus drivers.

According to the source, weapons were drawn and one individual is said to have been shot.

DNO understands that the individual has been transported to the Dominica China Friendship Hospital.
