crime-scene-gun.jpgA 25 year-old district constable and a 62-year-old woman are dead after what investigators believe was a murder-suicide committed at Islington Police Station in St Mary Sunday. Reports are that the District Constable Toyan Ormsby shot Dawnette Maxwell then turned the gun on himself on the compound of the police station. Details were sketchy last night and it was not immediately clear what caused the incident.

However, unconfirmed reports are that Maxwell was the grandmother of Ormsby lover and the two were at odds.

The police force's communications arm, the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), said that the constabulary's Chaplaincy Unit had been activated to offer grief counselling to all parties affected by the incident which occurred about 1:40 pm.

The CCU also said that the Community Safety and Security Branch had also been directed to offer support.
