Mechanic shot and killed in Clarendon
The Clarendon police are reporting that gang violence has claimed another life in the restive Rocky Point Fishing Village following the shooting death of 38-year-old mechanic, Quenton McLeod, who was shot and killed just after 8 p.m. on Sunday.
According a report from the Clarendon police, the mechanic was killed shortly after ordering some items at a shop.
"We know that gang violence is in the area with the two rival gangs, Cubans and Campton, fighting each other, and it is likely McLeod is a victim of that violence," a senior investigator told THE STAR.
"We understand that the deceased drove to the shop and made his order. He was supposedly involved in an argument with his assailant(s), who shot him several times, killing him on the spot."
He noted that the once relatively peaceful fishing village is one of the parish's major gun-for-drugs points, and this has led to the deaths of more than 10 persons in the area since the start of the year.
