January 31, 2019

Rohan 'Tickman' Black, a man the Westmorland police classified as wanted, was shot and killed by lawmen on Tuesday.

"The police was doing a patrol in York District because it is one of the hotspots in the parish. The officers saw a man behaving in a suspicious manner and they approached him. While they were approaching him, he pulled a weapon and  started firing at them, and they returned the fire," Superintendent Gary McKenzie said.

A Taurus 9mm pistol was reportedly retrieved from Black's body.

McKenzie, who is the commanding officer for the parish, said Black was affiliated with the Venomous Viper Gang, and was wanted for multiple murders and shootings. The senior cop said that Black had been on the run for a year.
