Share post:

A 21-YEAR-OLD MAN wanted for allegedly shooting a police detective almost three weeks ago, was shot and killed by police yesterday.

According to police reports, the drama unfolded at September Square, 4th Avenue, Harts Gap, Christ Church between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. when lawmen executed a search warrant and confronted Romario Lashley. romario-lashley

A “wanted” bulletin was issued for Lashley on July 19, ten days after the shooting of Constable Shane Newton while he and other policemen were carrying out an operation at Melrose, St Thomas.

“They killed my nephew!” were among the few words of Lashley’s aunt who refused to give her name yesterday, as the family declined to comment when the news team visited their Melrose home. (TSG)
