He is Damaine Elleston who, the police say, was out on bail for illegal possession of a firearm at the time he met his demise.

Meanwhile, the two suspects who were allegedly inside the ill-fated vehicle are still being sought. 

 A 17-year-old  female of a Kingston address who was held during the incident has been arrested.

The incident followed the killing of Riversdale resident  Dewain Brown, otherwise  called  "Telma Bwoy".

It is believed the men who got into the altercation with the police, are the men responsible for Brown's killing.
