McFarlane was among two men killed during an alleged shoot-out with the police on Monday night (October 26). The other is Jahmeele Omar Smith, otherwise called ‘Blackman’.
Elaborating on the killing, the JCF said its officers were conducting operations regarding the kidnapping and suspected murder of Linstead resident, Kenroy McPherson, also called Kemar.
It explained: “Reports are that a team from the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Branch (CTOC) were conducting an intelligence-driven operation in the Duncan’s Pen area of St Catherine in connection with the investigation of the kidnapping and suspected murder of 30-year-old restaurant supervisor Kenroy McPherson.
“Utilizing intelligence and a combination of technologies,the team of investigators moved to intercept the white Toyota Fielder in which the men were traveling. Upon seeing the police, men in the vehicle fired at the police and a shootout ensued.
“When the shooting subsided, both McFarlane and Smith were found suffering from gunshot wounds. A Remington 12-Gauge Shotgun was seized. They were both taken to a nearby hospital, where they were pronounced dead. One of the men escaped,” the JCF further said.
