INDECOM probes fatal shooting
The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has launched a probe into the fatal shooting of a civilian in Bamboo Lane in Morant Bay, St Thomas, on Wednesday.
Dead is 22-year-old Shamar Elliot.
THE STAR gathered that initial reports from the police were that an unknown assailant murdered Elliot. However, after
visiting the scene, residents insist that a policeman was also involved in the shooting.
Our news desk understands that several witnesses have come forward and have given statements to the INDECOM investigators.
On Thursday, several placard-bearing residents blocked sections of the Morant Bay main road in the morning to protest the fatal shooting.
The St Thomas police told THE STAR that their investigations are ongoing.
