KINGSTON, Jamaica — The International University of the Caribbean (IUC), president Rev Dr Maitland Evans says that the untimely death of woman cop Ariana Henry has left the campus “shocked and deeply saddened”.

He also expressed condolences to Henry’s family and classmates whom he said "were struggling to come to terms with her death".

Henry, a member of the Island Special Constabulary Force for three years and assigned to the Harman Barracks, was a second-year Psychology student at the IUC's Central Campus in Kingston.

Henry, 23, was shot dead Friday night in Marine Park, Portmore, St Catherine, while standing at her gate with another colleague.

One man is under police guard after he turned up at hospital and was identified as one of the men involved in the gun attack, which left Henry dead.

Observer Online learned Monday that the suspect is still being treated at hospital.
