A man who the police say escaped prison last June has been murdered in Westmoreland.

Twenty-one-year-old Romaine Esson, otherwise called ‘School Boy’, of Dalling Street, Savanna-la-Mar in Westmoreland was shot dead in Caanan Mountain, Little London.

The Little London Police say about 1:30 yesterday afternoon, residents heard an explosion and alerted them.

They say on their arrival, Esson was seen lying in a yard with a gunshot wound.

The scene was processed and the body removed to the morgue.

The police say Esson was charged for murder, but escaped from the Savanna-la-Mar Police lock-up in June 2015.
