A?CHRIST?CHURCH man, who stabbed a policeman in the face, was shot to death a stone’s throw away from his home in Bartletts Tenantry, Sargeants Village.
Scores of residents converged on the crime scene just after 4 p.m. when news spread that 40-year-old John “Stokes”?Kellman was fatally shot in the chest after a confrontation with two law officers.
Reports indicate that two officers, one in uniform, the other in plainclothes, were carrying out investigations in the area, when they were allegedly attacked by Kellman. 
Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said that Kellman reportedly stabbed police officer Ricardo Connell, a constable attached to the Worthing Station, and was about to injure the other officer, “when both fearing for their lives, discharged their firearms, [and] the man was shot and died on the scene”.
Kellman’s girlfriend Tasha Mason, an employee of Chefette Rockley, broke down on arrival at the scene. (MK)
