Three persons have been shot dead on Maxfield Avenue, in lower St. Andrew, since Sunday.
In the latest incident, one man was shot dead Monday night while attending a wake in Whitfield Town. His identity has not yet been released.
Head of the St. Andrew South Police, Superintendent Arthur Brown, is attributing the killings to a recent gang feud in the Fitz-Gerald Avenue area of the community.
He says it sparked a police operation Monday night in which one man was arrested.
Superintendent Brown says a firearm was also seized in the area yesterday morning.
But he says no one was arrested for the gun.
He’s assuring residents that the police will be patrolling the community.
