The Spring Mount police have commenced an investigation surrounding the death of a security guard, who was shot by armed men who invaded his home, in Johns Hall, St James, on Wednesday night, May 19.
The identity of the deceased has been released so far only as Nicky’, also of Johns Hall community.
Reports by the police are that about 10:30 pm, the deceased and his common-law-wife were at home, when armed men forced their way into the premises, and held them at gunpoint.
The couple ran in separate directions to avoid being shot, but the now-deceased was chased and shot multiple times by his attackers who left the scene on foot.
The police were summoned and upon arrival, the wounded security guard was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
