A $500,000 BOUNTY has been placed on the heads of the gunmen who unleashed a vicious attack on an adult male and three teens in the Monymusk Housing scheme in Clarendon by Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams, who yesterday visited family members of the victims.

The commissioner said the reward would be given to anyone who can give the police information that leads to an arrest and charge of the criminals.

The top cop, who also had a firsthand look at the crime scene, issued a stern warning to the criminals, charging that they would be pursued and brought to justice.

"I had to come down here because I think it is important to visit with the relatives of the victims to commiserate and give them a commitment that this deed will not go unpunished. When I visited the father of one of the young men, I saw that he was a broken man. I saw the pain in his eyes; he lost his only son, who will never be replaced," said Williams.

"We, likewise, in the JCF (Jamaica Constabulary Force), are grieving because this is a tremendous blow to our efforts to rid the country and the communities, particularly this division, of violence," he said.

"This however, has strengthened our resolve to ensure that we catch up with the criminals, these cold-hearted criminals who committed this dastardly act," he added.
