Denham Town man now charged for murder of cop

Police attached to the Half Way Tree Criminal Investigations Branch have charged a second man in connection with the murder of Constable Derron Henry.

He is 22-year-old Yudean Brown from Tulip Lane in Denham Town, Kingston.

Brown is scheduled to appear in the St Andrew Parish Court today, June 12, said the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

He will join his co-accused, Omar Ricketts, who is from Chisholm Avenue in Kingston 13. Ricketts previously was charged for the murder.

Constable Henry was shot dead about 3:20am on May 22 while he was at a hotel on Waterloo Road, Kingston 10.

The JCF previously reported that the constable was carrying out security guard duties when he was alerted to a motorcar that had aroused the suspicion of persons.

He reportedly went to make checks and was greeted with gunfire. He received multiple gunshot wounds and was assisted to hospital where he died.

Another man who was in the vicinity at the time of the shooting was also wounded.
