According to Assistant Commissioner of Police Clayton Fernander the suspect in connection with this past Wednesday’s police shooting is no stranger to police.

In fact, Mr. Fernander confirmed that 48-year-old Timothy Cole’s criminal record stretches back for decades.

He said, “he was involved in criminal activities from a juvenile we were dealing with this individual, and he continued to be in and out of prison and continue in his old ways.”

At this point, the accused is said to be the only one police are looking for in this matter. 

When questioned about the motive, investigators held strong to Blatch’s killing being the result of an armed robbery. 

The island wide manhunt for a suspect saw officers go above and beyond the call of duty, and Mr. Fernander also touted the overwhelming support members of the public. 

The police force already met with family members of the deceased, and Mr. Fernander said they are also assisting with counselling for Blatch’s relatives. 

In the case of the pyschological impact of such a tragedy on the officers, Mr. Fernander said they lean on Dr. Timothy Barrett and the force’s chaplain, Father Davies and his team. 

He insisted that yesterday’s arraignment is not the end of this story. 

“The matter is not completed. We are looking for swift movement through the court with respect to this. So, the evidence will be laid, and we will wait for that time as we proceed with this inquiry.”, he said.
