Detectives from the St Andrew South police, working in tandem with members of the Major Investigation Division (MID), are said to be making some headway into the killing of District Constable Ricardo Jarrett on Berwick Road off Maxfield Avenue in the parish early on Sunday morning.
Jarrett, who was stationed at the Darling Street Police Station in neighbouring Western Kingston, was shot and killed and his firearm taken by his assailants.
