The police say the man they are hunting in relation to the murder of two cops and the injury of a civilian in St Thomas last night is a known contract killer.

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.

The police have identified Marlon Perry‎ otherwise called 'Duppy Film' as a person of interest in the case.

The police say‎ Duppy Film should immediately surrender and anyone knowing his whereabouts should contact them.

Head of the Criminal Investigation Branch Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ealan Powell, says Perry is a violent killer who has been on the police’s radar for years.

According to him, Perry is a known contract killer and has been linked 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.
