By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Friday night, the head of Haiti’s National Police Academy was shot and killed at the doors of a police training facility in Port-au-Prince, the Associated Press reports.
The murder of Harington Rigaud is the latest in a number of attacks against law enforcement including the murder of police officers and attacks on official buildings.
Haitian authorities are grappling with the increase in gang violence.
Haitian officials say that Rigaud was shot inside an official police vehicle as he was about to enter the police academy.
Authorities are yet to confirm who killed him but it is estimated that gangs control about 60% of that neighborhood.
Haiti faces severe economic and humanitarian crises in addition to struggling with a cholera outbreak.
