Police in Port Moresby have completed the first stage of investigating into the Erima killing that occurred in early December, 2017.
NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou said empty bullet cells from that crime scene have been submitted for ballistic testing.
On December 17, a young man was allegedly shot and killed by police, near the Erima Bridge.
Initially, police investigations began on 18th December, 2017.
The unit allegedly involved was identified and police statements collected.
Three weeks on, NCD Metropolitan Superintendent is pleased with the progress on the investigations.
This is one of the many alleged police killings in Port Moresby in 2017.
It had created more concerns on the unlawful use of firearms by police officers.
However, because of the limited resources in the Science and Forensic Unit, the team will take some time in complete the report.
This means the actual arrests can take months.
