Salmon says the police have also established a motive for the murder but declined to reveal it stating that it would compromise the police investigations.

District Constable Lewis Robinson was shot in the head while sitting in his white Toyota Camry outside a night club along the Lacovia main road.

He worked at the Santa Cruz Police Station.
