August 03, 2022

A Jamaican who was captured in The Cayman Islands on July 8 is scheduled to answer to charges of murder and wounding with intent following a shooting in St Catherine on September 29, 2021.

He has been identified as Rudolph Shaw, 30, otherwise called 'Boxer' or 'Boxa', of Ponzie Crescent in Longville Park, Clarendon. He is implicated in the murder of 59-year-old Wilfred O'Connor, a carpenter of St Johns Road in St Catherine. Reports from the police are that about 2:45 p.m., O'Connor was standing in his yard when a Nissan AD Wagon motor car drove up with armed men aboard. The men exited the vehicle and opened gunfire hitting him. The gunmen then drove off to another section of the community where they fired several shots hitting four other men who were standing along the roadway. The police were summoned and all five persons were assisted to the hospital where O'Connor was pronounced dead and the others admitted in serious but stable condition.

A collaborative effort led to the arrest of Shaw in the George Town area of Grand Cayman during a targeted operation by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and Jamaican law enforcement. Shaw, who is considered to be one of the most wanted men in St Catherine, was interviewed on August 1 in the presence of his attorney.

He was subsequently charged, however, his court date is being finalised.
