Barber shot, falls from third floor of plaza in Portmore
A St Catherine barber has been rushed to hospital after receiving several shots then falling from the third floor of a plaza in Port Henderson, Portmore in the parish.
The St Catherine South Police are now processing the scene.
Shortly before 11 a.m today, a Gleaner team in the area heard at least a dozen loud explosions.
After receiving several shots inside a bar on the third floor, the barber fell two floors down landing in front of the Spanish Grain meat outlet.
The shooter, who onlookers said was wearing a hoodie, then walked down the flight of stairs, crossed the Port Henderson main road, and escaped in a waiting motor car.
The meat outlet has since been closed.
The barber worked at a salon on the third floor of the Port Henderson Plaza beside the bar where the shooting happened.
