Minister Bunting said “It is a particularly shameful and reprehensible act to ruthlessly murder a young woman in the dawn of her service to country."
Just last week another young woman, Sasha-Gay Coffee, who was pregnant was also shot and murdered at her home in Portmore.
“There are criminals in our communities who are intent on wreaking havoc and disrupting peace and order in our society. They must find no safe haven amongst us. Call the police at 119, 811 and Crime Stop at 311 to anonymously say what you know”, the minister appealed.
Bunting also commends the policeman who was with Special Constable Henry for his quick response which resulted in one of the gunmen being shot and injured, and a firearm seized. He is urging the security forces to spare no effort within the law to bring all the perpetrators to justice.
The minister acknowledges the hard working policemen and women across the island who continue to put their lives on the line to ensure that Jamaicans are safe. “You accept this role, aware of the tremendous sacrifice it entails, and you continue to fight crime on our behalf. The country is indebted to you”.
Bunting extends sincere condolences to the families of Special Constable Henry and Sasha-Gay Coffee and to the wider police family.
