Jamaica Crime News, Hanover: One man was shot and killed, and a female shot in the regions of her face, following a brazen daylight shooting which took place in Cold Spring, Hanover, on Thursday morning, April 4.
The deceased has been identified as 30-year-old Kemoy Russell of Top Cold Spring. The police say they will not release the name of the female at this time, but she is currently at hospital in serious condition.
Reports are that, shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Russell left his home in Top Cold Spring and dropped off his son at the Cold Spring Basic School, in the vicinity of the Cold Spring square.
While in the process of returning home, he was ambushed by a group of armed men, who opened fire hitting him multiple times. Russell ran and was chased by the gunmen, and later collapsed inside a teacher’s yard.
A female who was also at the location was shot by a stray bullet, which reportedly caused damages to her mouth.
The police were summoned and upon their arrival, both victims were rushed to hospital, where Russell was pronounced dead, and the female admitted in serious condition.
In the meanwhile, the police have reported that this latest killing took place in the spate of three other murders, at separate locations around the parish, but they are convinced that this latest shooting was an act of reprisal.
