The police have now released the identities of the three people who were last night murdered in the violence-plagued community of Race Course, Clarendon.

They are: 13-year-old Central High School student, Shaniel Bartley; 24-year-old Amoy Ricketts otherwise known as 'Dolly' a bartender of New Longville; and Randal Ranger of the Water Well Housing Scheme. 

It is reported that about 9:30 p.m, the three were among people at a bar in Race Course when two men got out of a motor vehicle, entered the bar and opened fire killing them and injuring three others.

The police suspect that Ricketts could have been the intended target as, before alighting from the vehicle, the gunmen called her by name.

It is reported that she did not respond to them.
