Unknown-12The police killing of forty-one year-old William ‘Boneman’ Rock baffles relatives. Police at Calvary Hill shot him yesterday morning. Police say there was a confrontation and Mr. Rock fired shots at them.


But relatives, including his girlfriend, whom he left at homes minutes before he was killed, say he was a quiet man and was not involved in any criminal activities. His unidentified girlfriend told reporters yesterday she heard the gunshots shortly after Mr. Rock left for work.
