Calm Restored to Grange Hill after Joint Military Posted in the Area  

Jamaica Crime News, Westmoreland: Residents of Grange Hill in Westmoreland breathe a sigh of relief on Wednesday night, after several joint military teams were posted in the area to restore calm.

On Thursday morning, a number of residents reported that for the first time since the start of the week, they were able to sleep without the sound of gunshots echoing through the night.

The residents rejoiced just hours after gunmen slaughtered seven persons, including two children and a female in the community.

Following a visit to the community on Wednesday, April 2, by the Commissioner of Police and the Minister of National Security, a decision was made to post joint military teams in sections of the area.

In the meanwhile, our news team was told by investigators that the six persons who were shot and injured by the gunmen during the bloodbath, are presently at hospital in serious condition.
