Two police officers, Sergeant Julius Morgan and Constable Orlando Collins are presently on trial for the shooting of one of their colleagues, Corporal Milford Edwards, during a police operation at Rose Place in December last year.

A third officer, Constable Adrian Forde, who was charged along with Morgan and Collins, had his case dismissed.
