A civilian employee of Haiti National Police (PNH) was shot dead last Sunday afternoon, at the Bicentennial (Boulevard Harry Truman), according to Frantz Lerebours, spokesman of Haiti's National Police.

Following the death of this employee, a tense situation prevailed at the Bicentennial and Portail Léogâne area in downtown Port-au-Prince, where gunfire exchanges between rival gangs were heard throughout the day.

This employee was shot dead because he was suspected by gangs to be a police informant, Lerebours said, while assuring that the PNH has already taken control of the situation, and the police is doing its best to disarm the bandits, causing terror among the population of populous districts.

In recent weeks, the issue of armed gangs that make the law in poor neighborhoods has resurfaced after the disappearance in Gran Ravin (southeastern periphery of the capital), of the photojournalist Vladjimir Legagneur, Wednesday, March 14, 2018.

The population is still awaiting the results of the analysis of the DNA test from fresh bones and parts of human bodies recovered in Gran Ravin by the scientific police, to determine whether they correspond to the construction or not of the body of the photographer-journalist.

The 30-year-old photojournalist traveled to Grand Ravine to report on the conditions in this neighborhood. Since then, he has never returned to his home.
