The Freeport police have launched a manhunt for a 24-year-old man of a New Ramble address in Bogue, who they believe made an attack on a family with an illegal gun.
According to reports, earlier this week, a woman, the alleged mother of the suspect's child, who hails from Glendevon community, went to the child's father house in New Ramble and while there an argument developed between the two over custody of the child.
The argument got heated where the man threatened to kill the woman and her family.
The woman quickly left the house to meet with her mother and another family member to make a report at the police station.
While they were in the process of leaving the community, the accused man armed with a handgun ambushed them and opened fire.
Luckily all three women managed to escape unhurt.
The lawmen then went in search of the accused man, who is fled the area.
The identity of the suspect is being withheld by the police pending further investigations.
