By BBN Staff: There are more questions arising from the shooting death of 38-year-old Fareed Ahmad, including what happened to his licensed firearm?
Head of the Police Department’s Professional Standards Branch, Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, said that police cut open Ahmad’s BMW SUV yesterday morning in search of firearms belonging to Ahmad, and his passenger, Woman Police Constable Michelle Brown.
Williams said that they found one firearm matching the description of Brown’s Police issued weapon, and two expended shells inside the mangled front of the vehicle. Williams said that Ahmad’s weapon still has not been found. Police are conducting tests to verify if the two shells found in the vehicle were fired from Brown’s weapon.
Meanwhile Brown remains under guard at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hosptial, and will be interrogated as a suspect in Ahmad’s murder upon release.
Hattieville residents rendered assistance to Ahmad around 6 a.m. on Thursday when he was involved in what look at first instance like a road traffic accident. At the KHMH, doctors discovered he had a bullet wound, both entry and exit wound to his face.
Ahmad’s family said that they believe his death is connected to the formal complaint that he made against the Police Special Assignment Team, of which Brown is a member.
