“I was celebrating and on the way out, this whole affair happened, which was very bad. A horror scene indeed. I don’t wish that on anyone.
“He [the policeman] went, as usual, with Royal to the car and when he realised there was a robbery and the criminal was pointing the gun at Emerson, at the time the criminal got distracted, the policeman started to exchange shots with him. It all happened very fast, there were probably 20 shots.
“There were around five or six people with him. Each one went to a side running, dodging, because they didn’t know where the shots were coming from.”
Emerson Royal is currently doing fine after the incident as he needs more time to clear his head.
