The policeman who was shot and killed in Westmoreland on Wednesday has been identified.

He is a trainee Constable, Duvaughn Brown of the National Police College of Jamaica.

Reports are that at about 9:30 pm, Brown went to a nearby shop in the Naggo Town District area of Whithorn, Westmoreland, when he was attacked and shot multiple times by unknown assailants.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.  

The attack, which took place a little over 48 hours after two other people were shot and killed in the parish, where the State of Emergency has been imposed, has since triggered shock and anger among members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

The Police Federation of Jamaica, in a message, said the incident had left members in deep regret.

“Our sincere condolences.  May his soul find rest,” said the Federation release.
