Two people shot as gunmen remain defiant even as PM, police chief tour Mobay
The sound of gunshots echoed despite the presence of Prime Minister Andrew Holness, Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams, and a high-profile team of officials now in Montego Bay touring a number of communities under siege by gunmen.
Two people were shot in the Farm Heights area near Porto Bello. They are now being treated at the Cornwall Regional Hospital.
About 4:30p.m. men carrying high-powered weapons unleashed bullets on a shop where the victims were standing.
“One of my church members was shot in the foot. She is now getting an X-ray,” a pastor told The Gleaner from the Cornwall Regional Hospital.
