Jamaica Crime News, St James: The St James Police have now launched a manhunt to apprehend the construction worker, who shot and injured two other workers who were working on the construction site at the Cornwall Regional Hospital, in Montego Bay, St James, on Tuesday morning, May 7.
One police source say they have gotten some identification on the shooter, and are now working to place him in custody in short order.
Reports are that about 11:30 a.m., the accused who is employed as a laborer to a construction company carrying out repairs on the Cornwall Regional Hospital, got involved in a dispute with two other construction workers.
During the argument, the men exchanged a barrage of expletives at each other, which did not go well with the accused. He reportedly ran from the rear of the hospital compound to a section of the Mt Salem community, and returned with a firearm.
The angry construction worker opened fire hitting one of the men with whom he had the dispute, and also hitting another construction worker who was standing in close range.
Both wounded men were rushed to the emergency unit at the CRH where they were treated and admitted in serious condition.
