Did Barham threaten others with his gun?Sunday, July 23, 2017
SANTA CRUZ, St Elizabeth — In the aftermath of last Monday's shooting at the heart of this south-central Jamaica town, there are persistent reports that businessman/ex-politician Warrenton Barham, who police said shot and killed 25-year-old Lotoya Williamson before being shot dead by a policeman, had a habit of threatening others with his weapon.
A check with the St Elizabeth police has revealed that there was a report two years ago of Barham threatening “someone” with his gun.
A highly-placed police source said the licensed gun was confiscated but was then returned to Barham after the complainant failed to follow up with a formal statement.
“Obviously, there were some disturbing things happening but that is the only report the police have on record,” the source said.
