THE policeman involved in the shooting death of a pregnant woman and the injuring of her sister in St Thomas yesterday has been removed from frontline duty and taken into custody as the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) and the police carry out separate investigations into the matter.
The police said they also had to move to protect the policeman’s family members, as their lives were threatened.
The Police High Command has deployed members of the Police Chaplaincy Unit, including the force chaplain, to St Thomas to assist and to offer counselling to both families involved.
Further details will be made available as investigation continues.
