A special type of ammunition, known in the United States as the“cop-killer” and also called the “black talon”, has reached T&T.
In an interview recently at the Forensic Science Centre, forensic pathologist Valery Alexandrov said during his autopsies he has recovered in the bodies of victims two special types of illegal ammunition which were being used by members of the underworld. Next to the “black talon”, the other ammunition was the anti-riot bullets which are used by police for crowd control during riots, Alexandrov said. He said anti-riot ammunition was used only by riot police.
