Residents of the Payne Land Community in South West St. Andrew are on edge this afternoon after the murder of an alleged area leader last night. 

Dead is 33-year-old Kevon Cole.

Cole also goes by the alias “Impact Jackson.”

Police sources say Cole was pounced upon by armed men on Payne Avenue shortly before 8:30 last evening.

The St. Andrew South Police are investigating the shooting.

But, they are yet to determine a motive.

Tensions were high in the community last year, when a number of shootings took place in the area.

But, there has been relative calm in recent months.

The police say they’re monitoring the community.

Cole is one of two persons murdered yesterday in the St. Andrew South Police Division, which has been under a state of emergency since July last year.
