Slain Police Constable Crystal Thomas.

The police have recovered the service weapon of slain Police Constable Crystal Thomas, who was shot and killed last night by gunmen.

This was confirmed a short while ago by the head of the Major Investigation Task Force, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Dean Taylor.

Taylor, however, declined to say where the firearm was recovered, stating that he did not want to jeopardise the fast-moving probe.

This is the second firearm recovered in relation to the attack on Constable Thomas.

Both firearms will be sent to the government forensic laboratory for testing.

Meanwhile, National Security Minister Peter Bunting is currently at the Denham Town Police Station meeting with members of the senior management team, including head of the West Kingston Police Division SSP Cornwall 'Bigga' Ford.
