The St Ann community in Jamaica remains tense following Sunday’s fiery protest over the fatal shooting of a man by a cop.

Residents claim that the policeman killed 43-year-old farmer and mason, Glester White without reason.

Angry residents later set fire to the policeman’s car as well as to a house belonging to his relatives.

One of the policeman’s relatives had called him to the community to quell a dispute over a water tank on a property leased by White.

The confrontation was reportedly sparked by White’s decision to deny water to a little girl on Sunday morning.

According to White’s common-law wife, Dionne Palmer, the policeman arrived soon after and shot her partner in full view of her and their two children aged five and two years old.
