Some residents of Whithorn, where the incident occurred, remain in fear following the incident. 

Yesterday, ACP Ferguson said lottery scamming and a year-long gang feud played key roles in what is the fourth quadruple killing in Jamaica since the start of the year.

According to reports, the four men were at a shop in Old Road Sunday afternoon playing a video game when four men approached and shot them.

The deceased have been identified as 14-year-old Shawn Clayton, 20-year-old Romario Drummond, 22-year-old Theodore Tennant and 16-year-old Demar Doeman.
