Cop questioned about gang slaying
There is a major development to report tonight on the murder of Peter “Jam Boy” Flowers that occurred on Caesar Ridge Road on Saturday afternoon. And that is that a police officer is under question but his name will not be released because he has not been charged with the crime. The officer is suspected to have been in the getaway car, a Black Toyota Camry, which was used by the shooters. When police set chase, the car was abandoned on Amara Avenue from where it was taken into custody by the police. It is not certain if the officer was behind the wheel or was a passenger but a source close to the investigation confirms that the officer is also detained for possession of drugs. Jam Boy, an affiliate of the South Side Gangsters was shot multiple times on Caesar Ridge Road when he was heading to the Port. The occupants of the car opened fire and after two shots the gun jammed and one of the occupants exited the car, stood over Jam Boy and fired at least ten more shots. Two female cops were in the area at the time and made an attempt to chase but their vehicle experienced mechanical problems. Family members who live nearby arrived at the scene moments after the shooting. Flowers was killed following the murder of Shelton “Pinky” Tillett, the leader of the George Street Gang, who along with his companion Kamille Andrews were pounced upon at a gas station on the Northern Highway before midnight on Friday. Up until today, no one has been charged for Flowers’ murder and as we said, an officer is under investigation.
