A man was this morning shot dead by police on a public passenger bus at the corner of Olympic Way and Bay Farm Road in Kingston.
The incident occurred sometime after 6:00 am.
Details at this time are a bit sketchy but, reports reaching OBSERVER ONLINE are that the man, said to be of unsound mind, grabbed a M-16 rifle from the cops who were sitting in a vehicle on Olympic Way.
He then boarded a bus, which was headed for Three Miles, but was chased by the police who fatally shot him.
While the police information arm, the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), was unable to provide details, the Olympic Gardens Police denied the report and said that lawmen were on patrol at the time of the incident.
CCU said that police were still processing the scene and more information would be provided when the investigator returns.
