The People's National Party (PNP) is condemning the Sunday night's shooting at a Jamaica Labour Party meeting in Sam Sharpe Square that left three people dead and two others with gunshot injuries. 

"We are deeply saddened when any Jamaican is killed or injured, " PNP campaign spokesperson Delano Franklyn said in a statement.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the injured and the families of the killed and wounded. It is doubly alarming in view of the appeal by Prime Minister and Party President Portia Simpson Miller for peace and calm during this election period."

According to Franklyn, this is a truly unfortunate and tragic situation.
