Woman among two killed in separate shootings in Kingston
The police say that reprisal may be behind the shooting death of a woman on Third Street in Trench Town, Kingston this morning.
She has been identified as Laphane Bent.
The attack happened about 7:30.
Her body had several gunshot wounds.
Bent is the second female to be killed on Third Street since the start of the week.
On Sunday, 16-year-old Rasheeda Hall, a student of Charlie Smith High School, was shot and killed by unknown assailants.
A man, 23-year-old Elvin James, was killed metres away during that attack.
Meanwhile, while at Third Street this morning, police investigators were called to another fatal shooting at Darling Street.
A man was shot and subsequently rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
