Police probe St Catherine double murder


February 17, 2017

Councillor Norman Scott of the Greendale division in St Catherine, where two persons were shot and killed by gunmen, has asked that the police redouble their efforts in bringing those responsible for the murders to book.

"It shows the level of lawlessness taking over the country, and we have to find a way to tackle these criminals. I am in sympathy of the families who are affected by the brazen attack," Scott said.

Those killed are shopkeeper Delroy Lewis, 38, and David Parkes, a 49-year-old bus driver, who is also called 'Parker'.

Meanwhile, the Central Village police in St Catherine are still searching for those responsible for the shooting incident that left two persons dead and another hospitalised.

When THE WEEKEND STAR visited Brown's Lane in Central Village where the murder occurred, residents cowered in fear and refused to speak about the incident.

"I don't have anything fi seh. A ya mi live and mi not able fi dem man yah," one resident said.

Reports are that about 10 p.m. on Wednesday, a group of gunmen armed with M16 and AK-47 rifles fired indiscriminately on a group of persons who were sitting along the roadway.

When the smoke cleared, Parkes, Lewis, and the other man were found with gunshot wounds.
