KINGSTON, Jamaica - Kay-Ann Lamont, the eight-month pregnant woman who was shot and killed in Yallahs, St Thomas on September 2, would have given birth to a son, an autopsy at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH), yesterday, revealed.
The unborn child died in his mother’s womb, after she was killed last week. She was shot twice in the head. Her sister, Novia, was also shot and wounded and was hospitalised. A police corporal, Dwight Smart, who was stationed at Yallahs, has been arrested and charged with murder, wounding with intent, illegal possession of a firearm and assault.
"I heard yesterday that it would have been a boy," Lenroy Dennis, the father of the unborn child, commented this morning. "This would have been my second boy. My 13-year-old son is traumatised, he always told me 'daddy I want a brother'," Dennis said. "I would have named him Leroy."
In the aftermath of the shooting, the Ministry of National Security has said that Cabinet has approved the exploration of the “engagement of psychological services” for members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).
These services will include: training police personnel to identify high levels of emotional and job-related stress among colleagues; implementing psychological/psychometric screening, both at recruitment and at periodic intervals throughout their tenure, to identify 'at risk' personnel; and, ensuring that police personnel have access to professional psychological services in a confidential setting.
