A resident of Claremont, near New Market, St. Elizabeth seems to be in disbelief after four men were shot and killed at a shop in the district.

The St Elizabeth police are now on the hunt for two men they believe are responsible for last night’s quadruple murder in the usually quiet district of Claremont, near New Market, St Elizabeth.

The suspects have been named as Anward Anthony Hinds otherwise called Kirky or Kirk Hinds and Denham Campbell also known as Popsie.

The police believe that Hinds and Campbell struck during a power outage last night and attacked patrons at a shop in Claremont killing four people.

The victims have been identified as 73-year-old farmer and shopkeeper Ezra Wright; another farmer, 60-year-old Archibald Brown, his brother 58 year old George Brown; and 50-year-old farmer, Morris Sanderson.

The head of operation for the St Elizabeth police, Deputy Superintendent Paul Bernard says with last night’s quadruple killings in Claremont, Anward Anthony Hinds and Denham Campbell are now linked to seven of the nine murders in St Elizabeth since the start of the year.
