Black smoke billowed from cars set on fire and debris blocked the intersection of Waltham Park and Hagley Park roads in Kingston as residents of Cockburn Gardens protested the fatal shooting of 32-year-old Jermaine ‘Shawn‘ Ferguson yesterday morning.
It is alleged that Ferguson was killed by police around 8 o’clock on York Avenue in Kingston 11.
In a release yesterday, INDECOM reported that the incident occurred following the pursuit of a man who ran upon seeing the police team.
“When me guh up di road, di people dem seh the police tek up Shawn and a next yute den dem leggo di yute and carry Shawn go inna di lane guh kill him,” she recounted.
In an attempt to calm angry residents, Member of Parliament for St Andrew South West Angela Brown Burke explained that reports had previously been made about the police who residents have accused of killing Ferguson.
