Residents in the Cockburn Pen community in St Andrew have taken to the streets after a man was allegedly shot and killed by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) on Friday morning, June 5.
Details are unclear, however, BUZZ understands that the police were conducting a patrol in the community when the 30-year-old man was shot.
Amateur video footage shows police officers throwing the man’s lifeless body in the back of a service vehicle.
Shortly afterwards, the residents began blocking busy Waltham Park and Hagley Park Road intersection—utilising the debris from the road works as well as old refrigerators.
Other videos show a vehicle on fire.
Traffic has been brought to a standstill in all four directions.
The police are on the scene attempting to quell the unrest. More information later.
