Jamaica News, March 15, 2018 – Security Guard Shot by Westmoreland Police
Westmoreland, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Investigators attached to INDECOM Western Bureau say they have now launched a probe into the case of two police officers shooting a security officer along Great Georges Street in Savanna-la-mar, Westmoreland earlier this year.
The investigators have also pointed out that the security officer who was shot over six times to the upper body is presently still in serious condition at hospital.
Reports are that shortly after 10:30 p.m. on February 14, 2018, the two cops who were in plain clothes responded to a call that a man was seen inside a supermarket along Great Georges Street with a firearm. They also drove to the area in an unmarked vehicle and came upon a man fitting the same description, walking in the vicinity of the Savanna-la-mar Library.
Both officers reportedly jumped from the vehicle with guns in hand and called out to the man. The man then pulled a firearm from his waistband and opened fire hitting the man several times to his body. Following investigations, it was discovered by the police that the man who was shot was actually a registered security guard employed by a prominent company in Savanna-la-mar.
