The Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, is probing the shooting death of a teenager.

The teen has been identified as 15-year-old, Narando Boothe.

INDECOM says the incident reportedly occurred on August 24 in Water Lane in the vicinity of the bus park in Kingston at approximately 10:30 p.m.

Police have stated that three officers were on mobile patrol when they were fired on by a group of four men. The police returned fire, and two of the men escaped, one surrendered and one was seen with gunshot injuries.

The wounded teenager was transported to hospital where he died while undergoing treatment. One board imitation firearm wrapped in black tape was reportedly recovered from the incident scene.

The detained man has been interviewed by INDECOM and enquiries continue into the reported account of the shooting incident.

Indecom says all the officers involved with the incident have already provided initial accounts of the incident to the Investigative team and were each served a Section 21 Notice to provide a statement and attend the office of the Commission to be interviewed.

Processing of the incident scene by INDECOM included the collection of forensic exhibits and the recovered weapon, swabbing of the hands of the deceased for gunshot residue and the sealing of the service firearms of the concerned officers for testing.
