A large deployment of cops and soldiers are now scouring sections of Denham Town following a shooting incident in that community today.

Residents report that at least five persons were killed during a shooting involving members of the security forces.

Included among the dead are a 13-year-old female student of the Tivoli Gardens High School and an elderly man.

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) is still trying to gather information on the police operation.

“Based on reports we have received two persons were reportedly shot and killed but as it relates to additional information we are still working to gather that at this time,” said one INDECOM officer.

The officer also said because of the ongoing operations INDECOM officials were forced to make a hasty retreat from the area where loud explosions were heard.
