Jamaica Crime News, Westmoreland: The Grange Hill and Savanna-la-mar police say they are now asking members of the public for their assistance, to apprehend a man who they say is being sought in connection with the murder of another man in the parish last year.
The wanted man has been identified as, Burton Shearer, otherwise called “Bap” of a Church Lincoln address also in the parish.
Reports are that in early 2017, Shearer was the complainant in a case with another man in the Savanna-la-mar Parish Court. It is further reported that after the case was tried, the Judge found the other man not guilty and dismissed the case.
Shearer was not pleased with the ruling so upon returning to the community of Church Lincoln, he allegedly armed himself with an illegal firearm which he used to shoot the other man to death.
Shearer then fled the community and has been on the run since then.
