(CNS) Updated 2:40pm Friday: The RCIPS has confirmed that a man was shot and killed by police officers early this morning in the Windsor Park area of George Town. Police said the incident occurred during a pre-planned firearms operation, for which they had a search warrant to look for both a firearm and the 34-year-old suspect who was killed. Police Commissioner Derek Byrne said that a loaded handgun was recovered from the scene, but because an investigation of the incident is now underway, he declined to comment further on the details of the shooting.

Unofficial sources suggested that the suspect was a Jamaican who was in the Cayman Islands illegally and that he had fired on the police officers.

The RCIPS said that the operation to execute a firearms warrant and detain a 34-year-old Jamaican man was initiated this morning, 6 January, around 5:30am, at an address on Theresa Drive in Windsor Park. It was carried out by officers from the Tactical Firearms Unit, who are highly trained in firearms deployment and operational searches.

During this operation the suspect exited the premises with a firearm; a number of shots were fired and the suspect was injured, police confirmed.

Two tactical medical officers, one of whom is an advanced EMT, were part of the operation. They  immediately provided primary medical aid to the suspect and executed basic life support protocols until the ambulance arrived. He was transported to Cayman Islands Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:16am.

Scene of shooting in Winsor Park, 6 Jan 2017

At a press briefing today CoP Byrne said that a full RCIPS investigation has begun and a senior officer has been appointed. Post-incident procedures have been carried out today in line with RCIPS policy and a post-mortem examination will take place in the coming days. However, in order to ensure transparency and independence, the RCIPS has asked the Bermuda Police Service to provide officers to lead the investigation into the incident.

Two senior officers from Bermuda will be arriving on island this weekend to take over the investigation and prepare a report in due course. Byrne said that there was no deadline for this and they would be given as much time as they needed and whatever support they required from the RCIPS.

It is believed that this incident is the first ever fatal shooting by RCIPS officers in the course of their duties. CoP Byrne confirmed that, as per the RCIPS employee assistance welfare programme, full support and counselling services are being provided to the two officers who were directly involved in this morning’s shootout and are available to any officer.

“This is a dramatic incident for the officers. There no doubt about it,” the commissioner added.

A woman was arrested at the scene for an unrelated incident, police said.

    To paraphrase the old song:

    Shoot em all,
    Shoot em all,
    The long and the short and the tall

    Shoot the expats, the illegals and the local son,
    Shoot any criminal carrying a gun
    They are bringing desperation
    To our little nation
    So go ahead RCIPSn shoot em all.

    Nina. 3000 Status Grant has nothing to do with this dam Jamaican criminal. The dude had a gun and fired shots at the police. What you wanted the police to do? Not react? I am with them. Kill the bastard and free up the Cayman Islands of his sort. He was not a Status Holder or a McKeeva Status Grant. He was an illegal bastard working against us.

    As a Jamaican living here for a little over 40 years, I do apologize. We always seems to make the news, whether it be good or bad. On behalf of all the decent Jamaicans living in your island and calling the Cayman Islands HOME, we are sorry. My biggest regret is that we were not there to assist the police to take him out. Just as we do not want that kind of ‘us’ in Jamaica, we do not want that kind here amongst us. Blessings.

I guess you all know that those same foreign people you all talking about is the tiff ones and don’t give a change for you all to slip up. But I want to congratulate the RCIPS for a job well done! To the two officers you are HEROS 👑. God will forgive as he seen everything. Just pray to him and he will help you all get over it. You all needs now to get 50% more salary for a job well done. We don’t know where these officers are from but whomever or wherever they are congrats and we the people of the Cayman Islands have your backs. God bless the two of you and the entire RCIPS.

    This is NOT the first fatal shooting by Police in Cayman. In the 1960’s during an event at George Town Town Hall there was a disturbance which resulted in an on-duty Police Officer fatally shooting a man. Perhaps it can be claimed as the first fatal shooting by “RCIPS” because in those days they were known as the Cayman Island Police Force. Semantics!

    It’s probably that dude from the news a week or two ago who they suspected landed here illegally and had prior robbery charges in Cayman, serving only a fraction of his sentence. He had a gun because he was robbing homes. Cops need to drive around neighbourhoods at night looking for these guys, they carry guns.

      We don’t know the specific details except like a load gun was found at the scene … but I think it is highly probable that one of our armed cops would have killed the man if this man flashed the loaded firearm in front of them.

      You have probably never been in a position where someone points a gun at you, but if you decide to fire, the idea that you could shoot to wound or knock the gun out of his hand is Hollywood fantasy stuff. Hit someone other than in a critical area – especially with the low kinetic energy rounds law enforcement is using – and he is shooting back still. You either don’t fire and take the consequences – for you and your colleagues – or its 2 or 3 rounds centre mass, head if you are really good. He decides to carry the gun and use it – what would you prefer, the innocent law enforcement officer doing his job takes the bullet instead? I am sure God is going to give these officers an easy ride if the guy on the other side produced a firearm and showed every intention of using it.

      With the mind you have one has to wonder if you are not the killer causing blame to be laid on those West Bay gangstas.

      I hope the RCIPS finds you, charges you for inciting murder and give you the punishment for which you advocate.

      As for the dirt bike riders, if you hate them so much that you would want them killed for joyriding, then really, between you and them who is truly worse and most murderous amongst us all.

      I have a feeling you’re a little over 18 and probably over 25, the ages against those you are calling for the murders of; you are a horrible person, wicked from the heart and deserving of true justice by your own mouth.

There is such a thing as shoot to maim, but if i’m a cop and a gun is pointed at me who can blame them for shooting to kill. Where in my post did it say kill the joy riders? And yes, I am in my sixties and want to claim back the peace I once knew. Funny how you were so quick to judge me on one short post which you obviously did not read. I have been many places had an AK47 shoved in my face, seen death, destruction and poverty, brought about by corruption and war, so I value peace, but peace ALWAYS comes at price, always.

      How can anyone justify this. This criminal came to Cayman, committed crimes, went to prison, was deported, came back in illegally, probably on some nefarious business, apparently was hiding from the police, police figured out where he was hiding, they went to the premises to get him, he came out with a loaded gun and he was shot. This is not about him being a Jamaican, this is about a criminal who would no doubt fire on the officers. Obviously he gave no thought of his life and would have taken down our officers.i do not rejoice at anyone’s death, but I am thankful that our guys are still alive. No doubt they are shaken up over this. Let us pray for them not just today but daily as they put themselves in harms way to protect us.

      This is the first in recent times that a police officer killed a criminal with a firearm but one similar incident also happened many years ago.

      In case you didn’t know, back in 1963-64 a police officer killed a man next to the town clock in George Town with a firearm. The man killed was a Myles I believe, who attempted to stab a police officer on the ground with a knife and the officer who was from Bodden Town, shot through his own hand and killed the man in self defense.

      I say any man/woman who threatens a police officer or a civilian with a firearm or another lethal weapon, which poses an imminent threat to innocent lives, should be killed immediately.

      I don’t care where you are from or who your family are, down you should go and good riddance from our society.

I am sure that the officer is also traumatized from such an occurrence. This being the first of its kind as far as I can remember and I have been around for a number of years.

    Yes Cayman yet another threshold crossed and unfortunately brought here like everything else that we are having to suffer with. This only stands yet again to highlight the need to stop importing criminals from overseas who’s violent behavior warrants this type of deadly force to be used. Now they know they will be met with deadly force it may or may not deter them or simply make them even more violent and desperate in the near furure. Wrap this up RCIPS and get those who assisted him where ever or who ever it is. All those complicit need to be sent home or prosecuted also.

        Why? A foreigner here illegally had an illegal firearm and likely threatened the lives of our police officers. This time it is perfectly appropriate to raise the issue of his origin because of the relevance to our border security. When a home grown Caymanian commits an offence, then we can question the failings of our education systems etc. See how it works?

      I agree, stop importing criminals, after all, Northward is full of your own, and your cowardly home grown ganstas are killing each other anyway.
      Most of the crap you suffer is at the hands of your own, therefore sort your own s##t out before blaming everyone else.

      Yes you’re right. We need to start using harsher words and angrier stares to stop the criminals.

      Yeh Catcha Fire and all those Caymanians in Northward should be released and Jeff Webb should come home and there is no local crime or bribery and corruption going on, let alone child abuse at a local level. We am perfect.

    Without pre-judging it, please let us ensure the police and the police officer especially are supported. The police firearms officers do not get paid anymore, yet are prepared to put themselves in harms way to protect us, the public of the Cayman Islands. They are the ones we expect to take the hard knocks and protect us, without them, we have anarchy on the streets. We do not want any liberal calls for enquiries, they need our full support.

      Have you had your head buried in the sand for the last 20yrs? DTF have been carrying them since the department was created. Then there was USG. Then whatever they are to referred to now.

      There are at least two incidents I can think of. The one where the officer fired at a feeing vehicle downtown – missing the vehicle and the passers by – and the officer who accidentally fired his hand gun through the roof of his rental car. Plenty more incidents, including the recent Johnathan Welcome case, where officers did not use fire their guns although arguably had adequate cause to do so.

      This unit was originally founded in 93, back then it was the Special Task Force. It was changed to the USG I beleive in the late 90s.

      Back in the early 80s-90s CID, DTF use to carry on certain opperations.

    Assuming all is as it seems, my sincere sympathies to the police officer involved. I very much hope that he or she is provided with all appropriate support by the department, and has no residual effects from having to do what they did. We owe them our unwaivering support and gratitude.

        well, as you can read in the updated article “It is believed that this incident is the first ever fatal shooting by RCIPS officers in the course of their duties.”

        i guess we both learned something new today.

    The Police did their job. As I recall, someone pointed a gun at our officers and lived to tell the tale a few months back. This individual, who I can only assume had a gun or some weapon, wasn’t so lucky.

    I say well done RCIP! Criminals need to understand that if they going to mess with the LAW, don’t be surprised when the LAW smacks them down.

    This is very sad but this is what happens to criminals/illegals. As a society we are all appalled by the rise in criminal activity in our communities and unfortunately this is what can happen.
