Police still tight lipped on the shooting.

The police force has started its own investigation into the killing of the three protestors at Linden, this is according to acting commissioner Leroy Brummell.

Brummell said the Killing was unfortunate.

It appears as though nobody is prepared to take responsibility for the shooting, but what is clear is that the police had taken a decision to shoot.

Many believe that the police did not follow standard operating procedures.

Asked by members of the media why the water cannon was not used Brummell said that the cannon could not have reached Linden in time although the force had notice for weeks that a protest was planned.

The Police force is claiming that policemen were attacked by the protestors who were blocking the bridge at Linden, but the protestors say the they were having a peaceful protest  and never attacked the police.
