The Ashaiman Police, upon picking the intelligence, then proceeded to the scene where the now deceased suspect was spotted in the company of some other gang members.
According to the Police, he bit the finger of one of its officers and pulled out a locally manufactured gun in an attempt to fire at the police when they arrived at the scene.
