Police appeal in shooting death
POLICE ARE APPEALING for assistance from members of the public who witnessed yesterday’s robbery at Chefette Harbour Road and subsequent shooting death of a Christ Church man.
Dead is 52-year-old Carlisle Peter Jones of Boarded Hall. A nephew identified his body last night.
Jones was before the court earlier this year for a burglary of Chefette and a robbery of KFC which he committed two days apart in 2007.
According to a media release, Police responded to the robbery at the Chefette location and encountered the assailant at the east entrance of the compound, fleeing from the area.
”At that time he attacked the Police and fearing for their safety, discharged their service firearms. The assailant was wounded and died at the scene,” the release said.
Although no one else was injured, two female employees of Chefette – one of whom is pregnant – were traumatised and had to be rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Anyone with information is asked to call Police Emergency telephone number 211. (PR/SAT)
