The mother of one of three teenagers killed during an alleged shoot out in Westmoreland last week is accusing the Police of committing a triple murder.
Dead are 17 year old Clive Stone of Ricketts Avenue, 16 year old Shane Nunes of Darling Street, and 16-year-old Sakeen Satchwell of Segree Street in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland.
The Police High Command says Stone, Nunes and Satchwell were cut down when they fired upon a team of Policemen who responded to a report of an attempted robbery at a Supermarket in Savanna-la-Mar.
Shane Nunes’ mother, Cameisha Brown says a number of eye witnesses have told her that the teenagers were accosted in the supermarket and shot dead despite begging for mercy.
Miss Brown says her son Shane, who’s also called Bowlo, was cut down in cold blood.
Miss Brown says she’s received a number of reports that the teenagers were killed after they were detained inside the Supermarket for almost an hour.
Last week Police Area 1 Commander, Assistant Commissioner Winchroy Budhoo gave this account of how the teenagers were killed.
Miss Brown says she does not believe ACP Buhdoo.
Meanwhile, the Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, has launched a high level investigation into the killing of the teenagers.
In a statement today, the Commission said the firearms of the concerned officers were taken out of circulation and submitted to the Forensic Laboratory for analysis
The Commission is asking anyone who may have witnessed or can provide any information to call its Western Regional Office in Montego Bay at 971-1672, or their mobile number at 878-0167.
INDECOM also has two toll free numbers, 1.888.991.5555 and 1.888.935.5550.
Miss Brown says she has spoken to INDECOM.
