A retired policeman is believed to have committed suicide at his home in Wellington Heights, St Andrew, on Tuesday afternoon.
He has been identified as Lloyd Anthony Wilson, otherwise called ‘Willo’ and ‘Patcha Grey’, a deputy superintendent of police.
Information reaching OBSERVER ONLINE is that Wilson was at home with several family members when they heard an explosion in the upstairs bedroom.
The police were summoned, and on their arrival found the door to the bedroom locked.
The door was kicked off and the officers entered the room and went through the closet into the bathroom where they found Wilson clad in a grey T-shirt and blue underwear with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the centre of the forehead.
It is understood that he was in a sitting position on the floor near the toilet. A firearm was on the floor to his left side in a pool of blood, and one spent casing was also found in the bathroom.
