Three suspects including a police constable arrested for murder

The police have laid charges against the three suspects, including a member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, who were arrested three weeks ago for the contract-style killing of 33-year-old transport operator, Carl Armstrong, in Grant's Pen, St Thomas.
 
Those charged are 26-year-old police constable, Bradan Logan, who is attached to the Hunts Bay Police Station, 30-year-old Knowayne Ennis, and 21-year-old Shamalo Panton, both of Metcalfe Road addresses in Kingston.
 
The men were charged Wednesday night after a St Thomas Parish Judge gave the cops until Thursday to lay charges or release them.
 
Mr. Armstrong was killed outside a school in Grant's Pen, St. Thomas on April 4. He had just dropped off a group of students when a car with several men abroad drove up. The men immediately opened fire on Mr Armstrong, killing him on the spot.
                                                          
The car with the constable and the other suspects was later intercepted in Bull Bay. The police seized three guns and 50 rounds of ammunition in the vehicle.
 
Investigators say Mr Armstrong was the wrong target and was killed because he was driving the vehicle of the intended target.
