The St Ann police are currently probing the stabbing death of a hotel worker by a group of men at a home in Hartland, Priory in St Ann, which was caught on CCTV.
The deceased has been identified as 40-year-old Damian Haye, more commonly known as ‘Squire’, of a Hartland address in the parish.
Reports are that Haye was stabbed and his throat slashed, while another man was stabbed and injured.
The incident reportedly took place at approximately 11:00 am on Wednesday, July 11 while the deceased was at his home and heard someone knocking on his door.
