Head of the Manchester Police Superintendent Wayne Cameron says investigators are treating the death of Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) employee Keneisha McKenzie Gayle, as a homicide.

Superintendent Cameron says Gayle’s common law husband is still being questioned.

It reported that Gayle and her common-law husband were home when she was shot in the armpit.

She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

According to Superintendent Cameron, the man, who is a licensed firearm holder, told investigators that Gayle was handing him his gun when the weapon went off accidentally.

He says the Glock pistol has been seized and is undergoing forensic examination.
