Fifteen people killed across the island. PDF Print

Gunmen went on the rampage across the island Monday leaving 15 persons dead.

Most of the victims were reportedly killed in St. Catherine.

Among the victims were two taxi operators who were shot dead by gunmen in separate incidents at Corlett Road and Lime Tree Grove, St. Catherine.

Dead are 37-year-old Dwight Thompson of Corlett Road and 44-year-old Michael Walker of Lakes Pen.

In the first incident about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, colleagues of Mr. Walker who had discovered him missing carried out a search and later found his body with gunshot wounds on the Lime Tree Grove main road.

It was removed to the morgue for post mortem.

Approximately four hours later, Mr. Simpson's bullet-riddled body was found slumped over the steering wheel of his motor car.

The vehicle was found in a ditch along side Corlett Road.

Residents had called the police and reported hearing explosions prior to the discovery.                  

Officers processed the crime scenes and the bodies were removed to the morgue.

Data collected by RJR News revealed that more than 350 persons have been murdered in Jamaica since January.
