A man was killed yesterday as he entered a bar in Mineral Heights, on the outskirts of the Clarendon capital.

Dead is 31-year-old Oniel Rose, also called 'Wukkie Wukkie' and 'Big Dawg' of Canaan Heights, in May Pen.

It is reported that Rose was attacked and shot by three men as he entered a bar in the vicinity of Mineral Heights about 1:45 p.m.

Rose, who is said to be a former member of the Montego Bay Football Club and Sporting Central Football Club, was shot in the head and upper body.

The gunmen escaped in a waiting motor car. 

Rose’s murder comes hours after Jamaica Defence Force’s (JDF) Private Paul Lindsay was shot dead at a party in Clarendon Park.

The latest killings have reignited calls by resident for a state of emergency to be declared in the parish.
