By Aaron Humes: Four persons, including two who reported injuries, have been charged in connection with a confrontation outside Shisha Lounge on Newtown Barracks, in which a police officer intervened by firing a round of rubber bullets from his Department-issued shotgun.

According to police, they came upon the fight in progress on Saturday night and one of the responding officers let off a shot of rubber bullets from his shotgun to disperse the crowd.

Clayshon Lewis and Barry Young were charged for disorderly conduct. Britney Ramclam was charged for assaulting a police officer and Wayne Ford was arrested for the offense of obstruction.

The group were known to be consuming alcohol at the time.

The decision to use rubber bullets is under investigation by the Professional Standards Branch.
