More gun violence erupted in Frankfield, Clarendon last night with the shooting of two men in the Water Works community.



The police say the 45- and 56-year-old upholsterers were shot and injured by unknown assailants.



It is reported that about 7:40 last night the men were at their workshop when two gunmen entered and opened fire, hitting them several times.



The men were taken to hospital where they were admitted in serious condition.



The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that one of the injured men was threatened during an argument with a man earlier in the day.



The police have reported increased gun violence and other criminal activities in the usually quiet north Clarendon community.



In July, 30-year-old Alton Murris otherwise called Clacky was murdered at his home and another shot and injured also in the Water Work's area.



That incident followed a March shooting in which, 65-year-old farmer, Fitzroy Miller was killed during a bar robbery in the Frankfield square.
