$1m reward being offered for info on cop killings
The Police High Command is offering a $1 million reward to anyone who can give reliable information leading to the arrest and charge of those responsible for last night’s murder of two policemen in St Thomas.
Corporal Kenneth Davis who was attached to the Protective Services Division and Constable Craig Palmer from the Kingston Western Division were ambushed while playing a game of dominoes with friends in their community.
On a visit to the parish to meet with the families of the slain policemen, Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams said the full weight of the law will be brought to bear against the gunmen involved in the shooting.
It was during that visit that the commissioner announced the $1 million reward.
Commissioner Williams also indicated that the police are following several leads and will be intensifying investigations.
The police have listed Marlon Perry otherwise called 'Duppy Film', Jason Foster, and a man known only as ‘Patta’ as persons of interest in the case.
Head of the Criminal Investigation Branch Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ealan Powell, says Perry is a known contract killer who has been on the police’s radar for years in relation to several murders in more than one parish.
However, ACP Powell says the police cannot say at this stage if last night’s attack in St Thomas was a murder for hire.
Meanwhile, ACP Powell says four persons remain in custody in relation to the incident.
ACP Powell was speaking on Cliff Hughes Online on Power 106 FM this morning.
A third man who was shot and injured in last night’s attack remains in hospital.
