Police are theorizing that robbery was the main motive behind the shooting and wounding of a senior director at the Integrity Commission, on Thursday morning.
Ryan Evans, who is the director of corruption prevention, is being treated at hospital.
Reports are that about 11:00 a.m., the director was exiting his motor car at a parking lot on St. Lucia Avenue in New Kingston, when he was held up by gunmen on a motorcycle.
Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, Cleon March said a briefcase which was reportedly in the director’s possession at the time of the attack, was stolen.
Meantime, there has been widespread condemnation of the attack on the Integrity Commission’s Director of Corruption Prevention from various segments of the society.
