A man has been shot dead by po­lice in the San Juan dis­trict.

Ac­cord­ing to a pre­lim­i­nary po­lice re­port, at 5.45 pm the dri­ver of a black Nis­san Ti­i­da al­leged­ly shot at pa­trolling po­lice of­fi­cers in the vicin­i­ty of Sa­tar Street, Bound­ary Road.

Po­lice of­fi­cers al­leged that they were forced to re­turn fire re­sult­ing in the death of the dri­ver who was the lone oc­cu­pant.

The de­ceased was iden­ti­fied as Kendall “G” Paul.

They said the al­leged sus­pect was well-known to them as a re­peat of­fend­er for firearm of­fences.

In a video that went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia short­ly af­ter the al­leged shootout, a man who claimed to be an eye­wit­ness al­leged that the dri­ver of the Ti­i­da was shot and killed by the po­lice. The eye­wit­ness claimed that the dri­ver had no gun and there was no ex­change of gun­fire.
