KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The family of 27-year-old policewoman corporal Pagiet Davie is in a state of shock after her killing.




Police are investigating whether she was killed by her common law husband Sheldon Doufe, who was also shot dead about 1:30 a.m. this morning in Fairfield, Spanish Town, St Catherine.



A weeping Pauline White, mother of the deceased policewoman, told The Gleaner/Power 106 News that she just can not come to terms with her death.



"Mi weak, unbelievable, this is the last thing I want to hear, mi daughter is a hardworking person who is so proud of her three-year-old son," she said while trying to keep back the tears.



Davie was the third of White's seven children.



A number of sympathisers, including co-workers and personnel from the preschool where the corporal's son is a student, were at the couple's house to offer support.



Close friend and coworker, Sergeant Melissa Street, said she is dumbfounded by Davie's killing.



She described her as a hard and dedicated worker.



The Willowdene Group of Schools says it will provide counseling for Davie's son.



Meanwhile, Derrick Knight, the assistant commissioner of police in charge of Area Five, said Davie's passing is a sad moment for the force.



The Assistant Commissioner, however, calls for police officers to use the avenues established by the force to deal with domestic issues.



Davie was allegedly shot with the Government issued firearm in her care during a domestic dispute with her common law husband.
