Another law enforcement officer has been shot and killed. A District Constable was held up and shot execution style, close to the Lacovia main road in St Elizabeth on Monday morning.
Superintendent of the Division, Lansford Salmon, who is now at the crime scene, said the DC was shot in the mouth. It appears the victim's licensed firearm was taken by his attackers.
The attack brings to four the number of law enforcement officers attacked in as many weeks.
Less than two weeks ago, policewoman Judith Williams was shot dead as she left her East Kingston home. A few days prior, a policeman from West Kingston was held up and shot several times in Vineyard Town, also in East Kingston.
