Cops shoot, kill 2

Police are seeking to identify two men who were shot and killed during an exercise on First Street, San Juan on Friday evening.

Shortly after 6 pm, North Eastern Division police were executing a search warrant for narcotics on First Street, when they came across three men.

One of the men drew a firearm and shot at the police, but when officers returned fire two of the three men were fatally wounded. The third man escaped.

Police also found a quantity of narcotics at the scene.

The two bodies have since been transported to the Forensic Science Centre in St James, pending autopsies once the men are identified.
