Two people are dead and at least four others injured after gunmen opened fire on mourners at a funeral at Kings Chapel on Windward Road in Kingston yesterday.
The JCF’s Corporate Communications Unit, CCU, has confirmed the incident.
Police reports are that the shootings took place during the funeral service for 30-year old Romain Anthony White.
The victims were rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital where two were pronounced dead and the others hospitalized in serious condition.
One of the gunmen was reportedly cornered and beaten by persons attending the funeral before being taken into custody by police.
Romain Anthony White — a vendor– was stabbed to death over a month ago on Beckford Street in downtown, Kingston.
