2 cops killed last night
Two policemen were shot dead about 8 p.m last night in St Thomas.
They have so far been identified as a Corporal Davis from the VIP Protection Division, and Constable W Palmer, from the Trench Town Police Station.
Reports are that the cops were playing dominoes on the Poor Man's Corner main road when they were attacked. THE STAR understands that a car drove up and its occupants, opened fire at the group, hitting and killing the two officers. A civilian was also injured in the incident, however, the condition of the individual is not known.
Last night, Member of Parliament for St Thomas Western, James Robertson, called the double murder an attack on the state, and urged members of the community to cooperate with the police so that the murderers can be apprehended and justice can be served as soon as possible.
He also expressed his condolences to the families of the officers. It is understood that Corporal Davis once served as a member of the protective detail of former Prime Minister, Edward Seaga.
