Pedestrians were sent scampering for cover as gunshots rang out in the May Pen town centre, yesterday evening, leaving a shoe vendor dead.

The gunshots were heard shortly after 6 o’clock.

When they subsided the vendor, Junior ‘JJ’ Lampart, was found lying in a pool of blood.

Police personnel, who were nearby patrolling, rushed to the scene and took the injured man to the May Pen hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.

Lampart's death follows Tuesday night’s shooting and injuring of a man in the Buck's Common area of May Pen.

It also follows the murder of 48-year-old night club operator, Everton ‘Iga’ Mundle who was shot and killed while playing a game of football in the West Park area of May Pen on Monday evening.
