Five Policemen Charged to Stand Trial November over Shooting of Alpha Student

Kingston, Jamaica ( McKoy’s News) – Five Policemen Charged to Stand Trial November:  Five policemen charged by Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) with the shooting and injury of an Alpha Academy student in downtown Kingston on July 13, 2016, are to stand trial in November this year.

The cops – Kirk Haye, Shaun Abrahams, Damion Gillespie, Archibald Wright and Warren Ramsey – who have been charged with misconduct in a public office and refusing to give statements to INDECOM during their investigations, had their trial date set when they appeared in the St Andrew Parish Court.

Reports are that, the student was shot at the intersection of North Street and Mark Lane in downtown Kingston while she was traveling in a robot taxi. The taxi driver was signaled to stop by the law officers but he refused and so the officers fired on the vehicle while in motion. However, the cops who are attached to the Mobile Reserve, emphatically denied being in the area at the time of the incident.
