Marvin Campbell Sr, the main suspect in Sunday's killing of five people on March Pen Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine has surrendered to the police.

Campbell, otherwise called 'Fat Man' was this morning handed over to members of the High Command at the Office of the Commissioner of Police by Bishop Rohan Edwards.

The police say Campbell is now being processed by senior police investigators.

Commissioner of Police, Dr Carl Williams has since expressed appreciation for Bishop Edwards’ "sound actions" in handing over Campbell.

The Commissioner says it was a smooth handover.

Three children are among the five people killed in Sunday's attack.

The victims of  Sunday's murder are two-year-old, Koyandra Wynter, nine-year-old, Revaughn Evans and 14-year-old Marvin Campbell Jnr.

The other casualties were 22-two-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.

Campbell was wanted for a number of offences including incest and was named as a person of interest in connection with a recent triple murder in Spanish Town.
