As the recent flare-up of violence continues in sections of west Kingston, the police are reporting that nine persons were shot in two incidents last night.

And the police say three of those persons remain hospitalised this evening in serious condition.

It is reported that the first incident occurred shortly after 9 o’clock as six persons played a game of cards along James Road, in Denham Town.

The police say two gunmen approached them on foot and opened fire hitting everyone in the group.

Nearly two hours later the police say three persons, including a child, were on Bentley Avenue when two gunmen approached them on foot and opened fire, hitting them all over their bodies.
