The Police have identified three suspects believed to be involved in the killing of Constable Lynden Barrett.

That’s according to Senior Superintendent, Dean Taylor, who’s leading a Special Taskforce investigating last Tuesday’s killing of the policeman.

SSP Taylor told our news centre this afternoon, that all three suspects have criminal backgrounds.

He’s appealing to residents of West Kingston who have information regarding the policeman’s killing to come forward.

Some residents have claimed that Constable Barrett, who was attached to the Denham Town Police Station, was mistakenly killed by his colleagues.

But this has been rejected by the Police High Command.

Constable Barrett was shot and killed along Wellington Street in West Kingston.

SSP Taylor says the police will maintain that the Policeman was killed by criminals, unless they get contradictory evidence.

Persons with information can contact SSP Taylor at 909-8369, Superintendent Alden Davis at 564-9603 or 754-5048, Crime Stop at 311, Police 119 emergency number or the nearest Police Station.
