Two suspects held for killing of 17-year-old mother
Two suspects are now in custody in relation to the murder of a 17-year-old mother of a two-month-old baby who was killed in St James on Tuesday night.
Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay told THE STAR that the suspects are in custody and are being questioned by the police in St James.
Lindsay was unable to provide the age of the men in custody, but she said they were taken in late yesterday.
Meanwhile, no arrests have been made in the other shootings that also took place on Tuesday night that resulted in three other persons being shot dead and seven injured, including a six-year-old boy who is currently hospitalised.
Head of the St James police, Senior Superintendent of Police Marlon Nesbeth, is pleading with citizens in the parish to come forward with information that can help the police to nab criminals.
"We are appealing to persons within the area who have information on these individuals to assist us in how to get these guys. We are doing a lot of work around them, and we just need the help," Nesbeth said.
