The Police’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has launched a probe into the shooting death of a man by the police in Palmers Cross, Clarendon.

The head of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Fitz Bailey, says 28-year-old Rohan Stevens otherwise called ‘Virus’ was shot and injured during a confrontation on Wednesday morning.

Stevens later died in hospital.

SSP Bailey says members of a police team went to his house to execute a warrant when they were fired upon.

He says the fire was returned and when the shooting subsided Stevens was discovered with gunshot wounds.

SSP Bailey says a nine millimetre Glock pistol and 10 nine millimetre rounds of ammunition were seized.

He notes that Stevens was Clarendon’s most wanted man adding that he has been  linked to at least 15 murders committed between 2013 and 2016 as well as other crimes including shooting, robbery and extortion.
