Two men were murdered in separate incidents in Clarendon last night. The murders took place in Chapelton and the May Pen bus park in the parish capital.

In the first of the two incidents, 46-year-old Alton Lampart of Rectory Road in May Pen was shot as he attended to one of his two stalls in the May Pen bus park. Eye witnesses say Lampart was about to leave for work at the Jamalco bauxite refinery when he was approached by a man who pulled a gun and shot him. The man escaped on foot.

Lampart was rushed to hospital where he died while being treated.

Later that evening a dispute between 37-year-old Betram Fagan, also known as Tilapia, and his girlfriend's brother, resulted in him being stabbed fatally.

A family member told The Gleaner-Power 106 News that the dispute began after Fagan told his girlfriend's brother, who was recently released from prison, that he should no longer visit her.

The accused is now on the run.

The Clarendon police are investigating both incidents.
