It is reported that about 7:30 yesterday evening the two men boarded the taxi man's vehicle at Guinep Tree in May Pen with three other passengers aboard.

The taxi was destined for Wood Hall.

On reaching an area called Buckner, the men allegedly slashed the driver’s throat and shot him twice.

The men reportedly escaped on foot into nearby bushes.

The other three passengers were unharmed.
