A 24-year-old male suspect in the murder of a policeman last week was fatally shot during a standoff with the police on Monday evening. The suspect, Dwayne “Loothie” Logan of Navarre Lane in St Thomas, is believed to be behind the killing of District Constable Mark Forsythe in York District, Seaforth of the parish.

Reports about Forsythe’s death state that locals called the constable at about 3:20 p.m. to report sighting strange individuals in a lane off York Main Road. He went to the area to investigate after alerting officers from the St. Thomas Operation Support Unit (OSU).
