A man is dead and two others injured after unknown assailants opened fire hitting them in Zambia, Central Village St. Catherine last evening.

The deceased has since been identified as Kimali Wint.

Police reports are that the men were walking at about 9:42 PM when they were pounced upon by armed men who fired at them.

The three men were taken to the hospital where Wint was pronounced dead.

This is the second such shooting incident in Central Village in less than a week.

Last week Friday a woman who travelled from the United States of America was fatally shot at a wake for her mother in the community.
