The profit must be taken out of crime – PM comments on March Pen murders
Prime Minister Andrew Holness has described as gruesome and savage the killing of the five people including three children on March Pen Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine on Sunday.
Holness says he is also shocked at the type and cost of the weapons being used, saying the profit must be taken out of crime.
The murdered victims of the March Pen Road attack are: Two-year-old Koyandra Wynter, nine-year-old Revaughn Evans, 14-year-old Marvin Campbell Jnr, 22-year-old Venisha Bartley and 24-year-old Salesha Evans.
Residents reported that gunmen dressed in dark-coloured clothing, identified themselves as policemen and then barged into two houses occupied by the five people before opening fire and setting the premises ablaze.
