High level probe launched in Ackee Walk triple murder
Residents of Ackee Walk, a community off Molynes Road in St Andrew this morning expressed shock and anger over the deadly attack in the area that left three men dead and five others injured last night.
According to reports, two vehicles with men aboard entered the community and allegedly used the cars to block both the entrance and exit.
The men then opened fire. When the shooting ended, 33-year-old Omar Morris, 45-year-old bus driver Evroy Hibbert and 18-year-old Adonis Hibbert were all pronounced dead.
“Me did deh yah... there was no escape! A bout 60 shot fire,” one resident shouted angrily.
Frustrated residents claim this is a regular occurrence in the community, accusing the police for not adequately patrolling the area.
A high-level investigation has since been launched by the Major Investigation Division.
