The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is seeking the public's assistance in locating a woman seen in a viral video brandishing what appears to be a firearm.

The 19-second video, which was widely shared on Facebook on Sunday, shows a woman holding a 'firearm' and pointing it to the camera, while making reference to Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith.

She is then seen kneeling on the ground, while the weapon is pointed at her face.

A male voice is heard saying, "don't pull that trigger in she mouth inno."

The video attracted the attention of the Commissioner of Police, who issued a call for persons to provide him with the woman's name and address via WhatsApp at 482-GARY.

Shortly thereafter, two other videos surfaced on Facebook.

In one of the videos, a man explained that the 'firearm' was a prop made out of cardboard and PVC pipe.

Apologising for the 'misconduct', he claimed that the 'firearm' was not real, but made to be used in a music video.

In the other video, the item was destroyed by fire.
