Director of Haiti's National Police Academy killed

The Director of Haiti's National Police Academy was shot and killed outside a police training facility in a gang-controlled neighborhood in the country's capital of Port-au-Prince, last night.
 
The killing of Harington Rigaud is just the latest in a number of attacks against law enforcement, including the killings of police officers and attacks on official buildings. It also comes as Haitian and international authorities grapple with how to control rampant gang violence.
 
Police spokesman Garry Desrosiers confirmed the killing of Rigaud, saying he was shot inside an official police vehicle as he was about to enter the police academy. It is not known who carried out the murder.
 
The country's crisis was deepened following the 2021 assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, throwing the nation into chaos.
