The pursuit began over five years ago in December 2018.


The officers, who have the right to anonymity, were pursuing a suspect who was part of a gang targeting cash in transit vans.


When the two occupants of the car began to approach the cash in transit van on foot a number of officers intervened.


The pair in question fired shots after believing the suspect was armed and posing an immediate threat.


One shot struck suspect, Brooklyn McFarlane, but he was not badly injured.


He would go on to be sentenced to 13 years in prison for conspiracy to commit robbery and other offences.


Collectively, the gang he was part of would be sent to prison for a total of 141 years.
