A file will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions for a ruling.

The 30 year old policeman, who has been accused of being trigger-happy, was shot at a party in White River, Ocho Rios, St. Ann last week Sunday. It is reported that he had an altercation with the patron, who is a licensed firearm holder. The Constable was shot in the chest and hip. This would have been the third shooting that Francis has been involved in.

Investigators say the man claimed he acted in self-defense after being attacked by Constable Harris. While there has been an outpouring of grief from family and friends of Francis, there has also been overwhelming relief and even joy from other quarters at the news of his death.
