Between 4.30 and 5pm, three armed men attempted to hold up a fifth element Hilux with its occupants, but failed and ran back towards the settlement.
Zones Response Unit 300 was on routine patrol around the area when they were alerted by members of the public.
They gave chase on foot, managing to shoot one of the suspects armed with a homemade gun. The other two suspects managed to escape.
That same day, police report that occupants of a Nissan Navara were held up at Malolo Estate at Eight-Mile at about 5pm.
