Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

Up to late yesterday, police had not established a motive or identified any suspect(s) in connection with Saturday's killing of two men at Fairfield Road, St Catherine.

Delroy Edwards, a businessman from the community, and who is employed to the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), and another man, who was still unidentified, were shot to death inside a bar.

When The STAR visited the area yesterday, the community was still tense. Residents expressed concerns about the killings. "This killing now mean people have to lock up from early and start to fret about who might be next," a female resident said.

It was reported that about 9:30 p.m., Edwards who is also the nephew of Jennifer Edwards, the NSWMA's executive director, was inside a bar he operated. Police said a man walked in, brandished a handgun and fired shots hitting Edwards and an unidentified male patron.

The man escaped in the community.

The St Catherine North Major Investigation Task Force is probing the matter.
