Steps will be taken to bring two policemen to justice, says Police Commissioner
The policemen who are wanted for the Murder of Shaquille Grant did not get away from the police lockups, that’s according to the top cop Leroy Brummell. He said, the men were on open arrest and were at home. Brummel said, that after Wallace was placed on lockdown, pending trial, word got around and then Blue and Lewis went into hiding.
Earlier the Commissioner said, that the men were removed from frontline duties as the investigations continue.
The Commissioner said, that all steps both locally and internationally would be taken to bring the two policemen to justice.
Three policemen were charged with the murder of Agricola youth, 17-year-old Shaquille Grant, but arrest warrants were issued for two; Corporal Warren Blue and Special Constable Jamal Lewis, because they did not show up in court.
The youths were hanging out under this shed in Caesar Street Agricola, when ranks swooped down on them and began firing.
Romel Bollers was first to be shot and the bullet exited and hit Grant in the chest. The survivors said that one of the officers then went over Grant and shot him in the middle of his head.
The killing of Grant and shooting injury of Bollers sparked widespread condemnation by human rights activists and the political opposition.
