POLICE were fired at in Gibraltar this morning after a high-speed boat chase.
A vessel crewed by RGP and GDP officers chased an inflatable boat similar to those involved in drug trafficking.
Closing down on the boat, officers were then forced to retreat after two gunshots were fired.
None of the officers were harmed in the chase which took place just 2 nautical miles off Catalan Bay.
Despite retreating, RGP officers and local LEA’s have for some time been armed while at sea.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
