Constable Craig Palmer from the Kingston Western Division was one of two cops ambushed while playing a game of dominoes with friends in Poor Man's Corner near Yallahs, St Thomas on Tuesday night.

The police are yet to track down three people they have named as persons of interest in Tuesday night's murder of two policemen in St. Thomas.

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.

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 the murders.

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 Poor Man's Corner near Yallahs, St Thomas.

Four people have been taken into custody in relation to the incident but the police Corporate Communications Unit says no charges have yet been laid.
