The Police are investigating another multiple shooting incident in Western Jamaica.

Last night gunmen shot and injured six men on the Tucker main road in Gramp Hill in St James.

Reports from the Montego Bay Police are that about 8:45 persons were at a bar when a Toyota Corolla motorcar with three men aboard drove up.

It further reported that the occupants exited the vehicle and opened gunfire on the group.

They subsequently fled the scene.

The police say the injured men were taken to hospital where two were admitted in serious condition while the others were treated and released.

Last night’s shooting in St James came one week after the shooting deaths of six persons in Logwood, Hanover.

Four other persons were shot and injured in the attack.

All 10 victims are members of one family.

It is reported that they were at home when gunmen shot up their house and set it on fire.
