Gunmen engage police in shootout after Stony Hill murder
A manhunt is now on for gunmen who shot and killed a security guard at a store in Stony Hill, St Andrew last night and later challenged the police in a shoot-out.
It is reported that the men entered the store about 7:15 p.m. and opened fire on the security guard in full view of shoppers.
The deceased has been identified as 33-year-old Albert Joseph of an Old Golden String Road address.
The gunmen then fled the scene in a car but were intercepted by cops in the vicinity of the Constant Spring Police Station, which is located nearby.
A firefight reportedly then ensued and the men ran, leaving behind an illegal gun and the getaway vehicle.
The firearm and the car were seized by the police.
