The silver car, driven by an unknown suspect, reportedly struck and killed a police officer in the vicinity of Courts Megastore on the Churchill Roosevelt Highway (CRH) on Saturday morning.

Around 3:00a.m, PC Leon Ramsey was driving along the eastbound lane of the CRH when a pedestrian attempted to cross the road in front of him. Reports indicate that Ramsey, who was in the company of motorcyclist PC Clark, swerved to avoid hitting the pedestrian, but the vehicle skidded and collided with the pedestrian.
