by April 18th, 2022

The Kingston Western police are calling for calm in the Denham Town community today (April 18) following two straight days of protests, which started on Saturday.


The residents who mounted roadblocks were protesting the fatal shooting of thirty-two-year-old Horaine Glenn of Charles Street, Kingston 14.


Police say Glenn was fatally shot during a confrontation with a member of the Jamaica Defence Force on Saturday evening.


Head of the Kingston Western police, Senior Superintendent, Michael Phipps, told IRIE FM news, that based on checks made by lawmen this morning, roadways remain clear and residents appear to be calm.


SSP Phipps said he hopes this positive atmosphere continues throughout the day.

Meantime, SSP Phipps said no murder has been committed in the Kingston Western Division in recent weeks.


Noting that this is good news, SSP Phipps said he hopes this trend continues.

He is, however, calling on persons who have been listed as wanted, or as a person of interest to turn themselves in to the police.
