Opposition Spokesman on National Security expresses concern about mass shootings across the island

Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Peter Bunting has expressed concern about the high number of mass shootings taking place across the island.

His comments follow a quadruple murder in Spanish Town, St. Catherine, last evening (June 5).

Four men were killed and 1 other was wounded in the incident in Tawes Meadows.

Meantime, three men were shot and killed in 8 Miles, Bull Bay, St. Andrew on Sunday morning.

There have also been other incidents of multiple shootings in Kingston and St. Andrew, Trelawny and St. James, in recent days.

Speaking with Irie Fm News, Mr. Bunting said such incidents are very disturbing.

He noted that the country’s murder tally has surpassed the 600 mark.

Mr. Bunting said National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang is not addressing the issue adequately.

In the meantime, the Police High Command says it will address the country’s crime situation in a press briefing slated for tomorrow (June 7).
