Cecil Garden, St Catherine, tense following murder of alleged don
Residents of Cecil Garden in Spanish Town, St Catherine, are now on edge following the killing of a man in the community who is said to be a don for the Walks Road area.
The man, who the St Catherine North police are yet to officially identify, was shot and killed about 10:30 p.m. Monday.
Residents say they heard loud explosions and, after the shooting subsided, the body of the deceased was seen lying on its back with gunshot wounds to the head.
The police were summoned and the scene was processed.
The police say the deceased is of dark complexion slim build and about 173 centimetres tall. He was clad in a white t-shirt, jeans pants and a pair of black and white sneakers.
