The killing of 54-year-old Venrick Hudlin, following a confrontation with a police officer in Moruga on Saturday, led to protests in the community yesterday as residents voiced their outrage over the incident.
Hudlin was fatally shot along Gomez Trace, while walking along the roadway near his home.
Residents gathered in their numbers in the community and blocked Moruga Road, St Mary’s Village, near Gomez Trace, with tyres and other debris that they set on fire.
Fire officers were called in and the burning debris was put out and removed from the roadway.
A team of officers led by Sgt John visited the scene and while there was a brief verbal confrontation with officers, no one was arrested.
