The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) information arm, the Constabulary Communication Unit (CCU), has confirmed the shooting deaths of two men in the Lionel Town area of southern Clarendon on Tuesday.
However, few confirmed details of the circumstances surrounding the double homicide were available up to the time of posting.
Reports are that a single shooter who is thought to have been a passenger in a taxi that both now deceased persons were travelling in, shot them and escaped from the scene.
The two men, one of whom was the driver of the taxi, reportedly died on the spot.
One of the men has been identified as Kirk ‘Cakie Militant’ Taylor, a popular radio broadcaster/emcee/comedian/host known for his onstage antics at stage shows and bike shows in the area.
