KINGSTON, Jamaica — The constabulary's Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) is reporting that a teen was fatally shot on Marescaux Road, Kingston last night.

He is identified as 18-year-old Leonardo Powell of Chancery Lane in Kingston.

According to reports, Powell was shot during an alleged confrontation with the police. CCU said an imitation gun was subsequently collected from the scene.

Investigations are ongoing.

The incident led to a temporary halt to vehicular traffic in the vicinity last night as lawmen processed the crime scene.

The road has since been re-opened.
