Cop Charged for Alleged ‘contract’ Murder in St Thomas

The police have laid charges against three suspects, including a serving cop, who were arrested three weeks ago for the contract-style killing of 33-year-old transport operator Carl Armstrong in Grant’s Pen, St Thomas.

Those now charged with murder and other related offences are 26-year-old police constable, Bradan Logan, who is assigned to the Hunts Bay Police Station; 30-year-old Knowayne Ennis; and 21-year-old Shamalo Panton, both of Metcalfe Road addresses in Kingston.


The trio was charged on Wednesday night after a St Thomas parish judge gave investigators up to Thursday to lay charges or release the suspects.

Armstrong was shot dead outside a school in Grant’s Pen on April 4. This was moments after he had dropped off a group of students at the school.

Reports were that a car was driven up with several men abroad. The men immediately opened fire on Armstrong, killing him on the spot.

The car with the constable and the other suspects aboard was later intercepted by the police in Bull Bay, St Andrew. Three guns and 50 rounds of ammunition were allegedly taken from the vehicle.

Investigators have since theorised that Armstrong was not the intended target of the attackers, and was killed because he was driving the vehicle of the intended target.
