An unidentified man was killed on Commission Road in the Kingston 2 area earlier today, after reportedly being chased from an adjoining road by a group of gunmen who shot him several times.

According to residents, the incident, which occurred around noon, metres away from the transportation depot operated by the Jamaica Urban Transit Company, may have stemmed from an ongoing turf war in the area.

“Mi inside a mi house and hear like a pan a knock. When mi come out, mi see one man lay dung deh suh,” one resident told The Gleaner.

Deputy Superintendent of Police in charge of operations at the Kingston Eastern Police division, Rory Martin told The Gleaner that not much information could be divulged as investigations are still ongoing.
