Three held in connection with prison officer's murder

Three men are currently in police custody for the murder of prison officer Glenford Gardener.

The three suspects, who are all said to be from the Bagatelle area, and in their early 20’s, are also being questioned in relation to other criminal incidents in Western Division.

Gardner, 44, was gunned down outside an apartment he rented out in Sea Trace, Bagatelle.

The incident reportedly took place at about 7:30 pm on October 26.

Gardener was walking outside his home when a white Toyota Corolla car pulled alongside and the occupants started shooting.

The prison officer was hit several times about the body and died at the scene. 

More on this as it becomes available.
