Jamaica News: The Private Security Regulation Authority say they have now commenced a full scale investigation into the actions of five uniformed security guards who were caught on camera involved in a physical confrontation with a licensed firearm holder in Kingston on Monday.
We also learnt from a source at the Authority that a request was sent to the manager of Kings Alarm for a detailed report of the incident. Also requests were made to the Management at Kings Alarm Security Company that the five security officers who were seen launching a physical attack on the businessman be relieved of their duties.
The Private Security Regulation Company is the governing body which oversees the actions of every authorized security firm across Jamaica and a team attached to the department is now awaiting the outcome of a police investigation to determine whether the security guards acted in contravention of the law.
On Wednesday afternoon a release was sent by the management of Kings Alarm stating that the plain clothes security, who was shot and injured, is not employed to Kings Alarm Security Company. He also stated that he had reached out to the businessman who was seen on the video being physically abused by the security officers.
It was also noted that the businessman has acquired the services of a legal team who are presently awaiting the result of the police investigation in a bid to proceed with their case.
The footage which has been circulating on social media shows the plain clothes security attacking the businessman from behind while allegedly attempting to disarm him of his licensed firearm. At this point the businessman reached for his weapon and fired one shot hitting the alleged plain clothes security to his upper body.
What transpired next was very disturbing. The uniformed security guards held the businessman at gunpoint and forced him to drop his licensed firearm. They then handcuffed him while stepping in his face, landing several kicks to his body and slaps to his face.
