Two persons are now dead and four others injured following a brazen daylight gun attack in Olympic Gardens, St Andrew yesterday.
Commanding officer for the St Andrew South Division, Superintendent Gary Francis said yesterday’s shootings stem from a gang feud between rival gangs in the Tower Hill area that have been plaguing the community since last year.
Following the exchange of gunfire, a policeman was shot and injured after responding to the attack.
Superintendent Francis said the two policemen were travelling in a private motorcar on Pear Street in the community when a man fired multiple gunshots through the windscreen. Francis said the other policeman also received injuries but it was not clear last night what caused his injuries.
