Man Shot & Killed by a Group of Men in Downtown Kingston

A man was on Thursday afternoon chased and shot dead by gunmen along North Street in downtown Kingston.

The dead man has only been identified so far by his alias, ‘Israel’.


Reports are that the man was walking close to the Kingston Public Hospital when he was attacked by a group of men who opened fire hitting him several times.

It is understood that the man was shot dead one week after gunmen murdered his father in the Pink Lane area.

The murders are the latest in a series of tit for tat attacks being carried out by criminals locked in a deadly feud in the downtown area.
