Suspect shot dead during attempted hijacking

The Special Response Unit 102 patrol area covers Nawaeb Block and Miles area up to Nadzab. There are always two units on patrol within the area at all times.

Today at about 11am, one of the SRU 102 patrol was travelling inbound Lae City when they came across three armed men. The three were standing in the middle of the road, attempting to hold up vehicles travelling on the opposite of the freeway – driving out of Lae.
