The May Pen Police are still searching for two of four men who attempted to rob a policeman at Crooks Gate, Clarendon, on Friday night. Two of them were shot dead.
One of the dead men has been identified as Dameion Lloyd of Blue Mouth, Red Hills, St Andrew, while the second man is still unidentified.
According to police reports about 11:30 p.m., the policeman was driving from Milk River towards Four Paths when he stopped at Crooks Gate and came out of the car. A green Toyota Corolla drove up and four men came out of the vehicle, two armed with handguns. The men allegedly pointed the guns at the policeman and demanded money. The policeman allegedly pulled his service firearm and fired at the gunmen, who fled the scene.
The Four Paths police were called and during a search of the area, an unidentified man was found on the roadway suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to the May Pen Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Lloyd later turned up at the hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. He died while being treated.
