Police Make Another Breakthrough in Cop Killing Case

The police are indicating that they have another person of interest in custody as they investigate the killing of Corporal Kemoi Miller on Maxfield Avenue, in lower St. Andrew, on Sunday.

Earlier this week, Head of the JCF’s Corporate Communications Unit, Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, told Nationwide News that two persons were taken in for questioning.

Yesterday, Head of the Kingston Western Police Division, Superintendent Howard Chambers, said the police now have three persons in custody.

He says the police believe they’re close to making an arrest.

Meanwhile, the police continue to reassure persons that they’ll be safe to do business in the downtown, Kingston commercial district and its environs over the Christmas season.

Head of the Area Four Police, Assistant Commissioner, Devon Watkiss, says over the last month, the police have arrested 19 people and seized and over 40 firearms in the Kingston Western Division.

ACP Devon Watkiss was speaking yesterday with Nationwide News following a tour of the Coronation Market, in downtown, Kingston.
