The deceased has been identified as thirty-year-old Jermaine Banton, otherwise called ‘Romie’, a construction worker of Job Lane, Spanish Town, in the parish.

Police reports are that about 8:00 P.M., Banton was standing along the roadway when a Honda Civic motorcar drove up and a gunman alighted and shot him several times before escaping.

All three wounded men were taken to hospital, where Banton was pronounced dead and the others admitted in stable condition.
