The bloodletting continues in the community of Farm in Clarendon, where three people were killed on Saturday, just a day after the murder of a six-year-old boy in the same area.
That’s according to the Head of the Clarendon Police, Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron-Powell.
The dead men are 52-year-old Patrick Boeman, 25-year-old Sadique Brown, and another known only by his nickname, Oney.
Superintendent Cameron Powell, says Boeman was allegedly killed as a reprisal for the murder of six-year-old Timothy Bassaragh on Friday.
She says the attackers believe Boeman’s son may have been involved in the murder of the six-year-old.
Two more were killed and three injured in another incident the same day at a cook shop in the community.
Superintendent Cameron-Powell says her officers also came under fire when they responded to the shooting.
She says this situation is due to a long standing gang feud.
Meanwhile, Superintendent Cameron Powell says criminals from all across the country are converging on the farm community in Clarendon.
She says despite their best efforts to keep the people of the community safe they’re receiving no cooperation from residents.
Superintendent Cameron Powell, also says illegal weapons are a major problem being faced in the area.
