Bloodshed continues in St James

Members of the security forces on patrol in Montego Bay, St James, late last year.

Lawlessness continued to show its ugly face in the western parish of St James as bloodletting, which became the talking point of the weekend, continued late Sunday into Monday with the death of two men in Flanker.

The two men were killed when gunmen shot up a Toyota Mark X motor car at a stop light in the community last night.

They have since been identified as 20-year-old Shawn 'Blacks' Titus and 24-year-old Daniel 'Don' Anglin.

Reports are that a Mark X motor car, with four men aboard, stopped at a stop light in the vicinity of Flanker at about 11 p.m. when it came under gunfire from men travelling in another Toyota motor car, which pulled up alongside it.

The Western STAR gathered that when investigators arrived, they found two of the four men in an unconscious state while a third appeared to have sustained gunshot injuries.

Our news team understands that the fourth allegedly ran from the vehicle.

It is suspected that he also sustained gunshots.

Titus and Anglin were taken to hospital, where they were pronounced dead and the other man hospitalised in serious condition.

Over the past three days, 13 persons have been shot in the parish, nine fatally.
