Cops want information on guard’s killing

In­ves­ti­gat­ing po­lice of­fi­cers are call­ing on mem­bers of the pub­lic to come for­ward and di­vulge any in­for­ma­tion that will lead them to the killers of se­cu­ri­ty of­fi­cer Ri­car­do Dixon who was shot and thrown out of a ve­hi­cle in Carlsen Field on Thurs­day morn­ing.

It is sus­pect­ed that Dixon, 22, was picked up while he was walk­ing out Bhagna Trace in Chase Vil­lage. He was sup­posed to get a taxi to Ch­agua­nas from the tri­an­gle in Chase Vil­lage at the top of Bhagna Trace and then from Ch­agua­nas an­oth­er taxi to his lo­ca­tion in En­deav­our. It was his first day on the job with Heller Se­cu­ri­ty Ser­vices.

An au­top­sy con­duct­ed on Dixon’s body at the Foren­sic Sci­ence Cen­tre said he died from in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal haem­or­rhage con­sis­tent with gun­shot wounds. He was shot in the shoul­der, chest, and back.

Dixon’s body was found ful­ly clad in his uni­form with beret in tact ly­ing in the mid­dle of the road at Xeres Road in Carlsen Field. Po­lice found five spent shells near to where his body was found. Dixon was the fa­ther of a one-year-old girl.

Six years ago Dixon’s broth­er, Re­nal­do was stabbed while at school at Wa­ter­loo Sec­ondary School in May 2013. He was 14 years and a Form Three pupil. He was stabbed three times and his wrist slit by a Form Five pupil over an ar­gu­ment re­gard­ing a girl he was seen talk­ing too at school.

Dixon’s moth­er Camille Taitt is wor­ried about how she is go­ing to cope both emo­tion­al­ly and men­tal­ly hav­ing lost both her old­er sons to crime vi­o­lence. She is now left with three small­er chil­dren and vows to pro­tect them with what­ev­er the means nec­es­sary.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion are asked to con­tact the po­lice at 555, 999, 800 TIPS or 482 GARY.
