Jamaica: ‘REPRISAL’ – Family in fear as deadly shootings rattle August Town

Deadly gun violence that erupted in Hermitage, St Andrew, on the weekend, has driven fear into a grieving family and forced the abandonment of a peace march in August Town.

Dadrian Shaye, 33, was reportedly shot in the head and his one-room wooden house, located about 60 metres from a zone of special operations (ZOSO) checkpoint, set ablaze early Sunday morning.

One of Shaye’s uncles, who goes by the name David, theorised that the barbaric attack that led to his nephew’s demise was a reprisal for another killing that occurred in the area on Friday night.

In Friday’s incident that occurred about 11:15 p.m., Andre Antonio Perkins, also 33, was gunned down along the Goldsmith Villa main road near a cookshop in the community.
