Head of the St. James Police SSP Steve McGregor says investigators are looking at the incident, as a homicide. Reports are that on Christmas Day, the Constable went to Steer’s home to visit with his one year old daughter.
An argument reportedly developed between the cop and Steer, which escalated into a physical altercation. The police man reportedly pulled his licensed firearm and shot Steer in the chest. He then fled the scene.
Steer was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The couple’s daughter, as well as Steer’s 17 year old son, who were at home at the time of the incident, were not hurt.
SSP McGregor says the accused cop later turned himself over to the police and surrendered his firearm.
