Cops kill Central man

Ch­agua­nas res­i­dent Al­lan Mo­hammed was killed in a po­lice-in­volved shoot­ing in his com­mu­ni­ty ear­ly Fri­day.

Re­ports are sketchy but Guardian Me­dia un­der­stands Mo­hammed, 28, was shot by of­fi­cers while he was in his black SUV around 10.30 am, al­leged­ly af­ter he was in­volved in a con­fronta­tion with them as his ve­hi­cle ap­proached theirs along Crown Trace, En­ter­prise. Mo­hammed al­leged­ly drew a Mac11 firearm dur­ing the in­ci­dent and of­fi­cers opened fire on him.

Res­i­dents said they saw Mo­hammed’s SUV slow­ing down as the po­lice pa­trol car ap­proached on the street then heard six gun­shots. How­ev­er, they said be­fore they could go out­side to prop­er­ly in­ves­ti­gate, the of­fi­cers had al­ready put Mo­hammed in­to their ve­hi­cle and tak­en him to the health cen­tre for treat­ment.

Po­lice and res­i­dents at the scene said Mo­hammed, who ran a roti shop in the com­mu­ni­ty with his moth­er, was a se­nior mem­ber of the Un­ruly Isis gang in the com­mu­ni­ty.

How­ev­er, his close friends and fam­i­ly de­nied this.

Guardian Me­dia will bring you more on this as the sto­ry un­folds.
