WESTERN BUREAU:
It was a night of terror in St James last night as another 12 people were shot, four fatally. 

The incidents began in Granville, where seven persons were wounded as gunmen went on a 30-minute shooting spree.

Two of those wounded later died.

Then about 9 p.m.,  gunmen invaded Felicity Road in Glendevon, where a mother and her 11-month-old baby were shot and seriously injured.

Some time later, gunmen invaded Mud Valley in Anchovy, shot and killed two men and injured a third person.

Residents say it was a horrifying experience as the shooting lasted for several minutes.

St James has now recorded more than 290 murders since the start of the year, making 2017 its bloodiest year.
