Bloodletting continues in Clarendon

Four members of a family, including a two-year-old, were yesterday nursing gunshots wounds in Clarendon following a shooting incident Saturday night.

The Gleaner understands that the family was at their home on Foga Road around 10 p.m., when three armed men entered the house demanding money and gold.

The men attempted to rape a 24-year-old woman, who resisted, a move which resulted in the men opening fire and hitting all four.

Two phones were also taken from the family.

Also injured were the 24-year-old's mother, her boyfriend and their two-year-old son.

The police are investigating.

Hanover police list person of interest

The Hanover police have listed 31-year-old Ricardo Garvey, otherwise called 'Trooper', of Camp Road, Hanover, as a person of interest.

In a release from the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force yesterday, the police said Garvey may be able to assist them with ongoing investigations, but that they have been unable to make contact with him.

"(The Hanover Police) are, therefore, asking him to contact detectives at the Area One Headquarters, 9 Sewell Avenue in Montego Bay, St James, by 5 p.m. today. Garvey may also make contact by calling 952-2417," the release stated.
