A TEENAGER was shot dead last night during a police operation at London Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael.

Police public relations officer Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss said around 5:35 p.m., lawmen responded to a report that two armed men were in the area.

“The two men started to run and the police came under attack, and as a result, the police responded. One man fell to the ground and one loaded firearm was recovered. The other man ran away and we have police officers still searching,” he told the media.

When it was all over, 18-year-old Kadeem Ifill lay dead a short distance from his home.

Heavily armed police and Barbados Defence Force soldiers patrolled the district and had to control a hostile crowd which sought answers to what many claimed was a “senseless killing”.
