One man is dead and two others hospitalised with gunshot wounds following an attack in the Bucknor, Clarendon earlier today.

The dead man has been identified as Fabian Cooper, 23.

According to a preliminary police report about 2:30 pm the men were approached by others who opened fire.

The victims reportedly attempted to run but were chased and shot.

One of the men was pronounced dead at hospital and the other two admitted in serious condition.

There has been increased attention on Clarendon following last week's killing of three teen boys and a 35-year-old man in Hayes, south Clarendon.
