(AP) Jamaica has appointed a veteran law enforcement commander to lead its police force. National Security Minister Peter Bunting announced Monday that Carl Williams will start as police commissioner next week.

Williams led anti-drug efforts from 2000 to 2004. He developed a task force to combat lottery scammers and is the founding director of another police unit tasked with fighting organized crime. The 50-year-old Jamaican joined the police in 1984.

He takes the place of Owen Ellington, whose retirement was announced by the government in late June.

Ellington's retirement comes ahead of a fact-finding inquiry into the conduct of security forces during a bloody 2010 state of emergency. The government said it would also allow a panel to probe allegations of police killings without "any perception of influence" on his part.

(AP) The Jamaican agency that investigates abuse allegations against the island's security forces says a police officer has been arrested and charged with murder. The Independent Commission of Investigations says Cpl. Selvin Williams was charged Wednesday with killing a man in the southwestern parish of St. Elizabeth in December 2012.

At the time, police reported that Williams intervened in a bar fight when farmer Valbert Salmon was killed. The commission says it has evidence to warrant a murder charge.

The officer has been granted $2,000 bail. He has to surrender his travel documents and report to a police station during daylight hours. A court hearing is scheduled for January.

Earlier this year, the investigative commission levied murder charges against eight police officers in a single police division in central Clarendon parish.

There was a lot of drama and near panic in Half Way Tree in St Andrew on Sunday after a man believed to be of insane, disarmed a police officer and shot two people. Reports from the police are that about 2 p.m., a policeman was on patrol in the area when a mad man managed to take away a gun from a policeman.

Eyewitnesses say the police was writing a motorist a traffic ticket when the man approached him and grabbed his firearm from the holster. The man began to firing at the officer and then wildly in the Half Way Tree area. The incident sent everyone in the area running for cover. An off duty police officer saw what was happening and intervened by shooting the man.

When the shooting ended, it is reported that a woman and another adult were found with gunshot wounds. The wounded man accused of starting the shooting and the two wounded bystanders were taken to hospital.
