THE POLICE CONSTABLE who discharged the gunshots that killed 57-year-old Selwyn “Blues” Knight has been sent on leave while the man who burgled the deceased man’s home was jailed for two years yesterday.
According to sources, the 43-year-old policeman, a 12-year veteran of the force, has been ordered to attend counselling sessions following Sunday’s tragedy, which occurred outside his home. It’s where the chase to apprehend burglar Jamal Amal Skeete by Knight and his son, 27-year-old Junior Jamar Knight, ended.
Skeete, 27, of Bedford Lane, Greenfield, St Michael, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to entering Knight’s home at Queen Mary Road, Bank Hall, St Michael, last Sunday morning.
Police recovered two electronic tablets which Skeete stole from the residence. (TS)
