CAP-HAITIEN — The police force is currently interrogating 16 suspects following their arrest in connection with the investigation into the death of a police officer killed during an armed robbery on Feb. 19 in Petite Anse, a town on the outskirts of Cap-Haitien’s downtown area, the institution’s spokesperson in the Northern Departement said.

“We’re going to keep asking them questions so we can determine if they were implicated,” Arold Jean said. “And then we will more than likely hand over the ones we’re supposed to to the justice system.”
