Gang feud blamed for Westmoreland double murder

Published:Wednesday | September 4, 2013 | 12:06 PM

The Westmoreland Police say a double murder in the parish last night was as a result of an internal feud within the Tony Reid gang.



Those killed have been identified as 34-year-old Donovan Murray and 31-year-old Evon Gayle, both from Burnt Savannah, Westmoreland.



The police say reports suggest that the conflicts within the gang began escalating in July as members fought for leadership following the murder of Tony Reid in Seaview Gardens in Kingston and 43-year-old Prince Dell of Bleauwearie district in Westmoreland.



It was claimed that Murray drove the car which carried the killers.



The police say they had warned Murray that his life was in danger and that he should leave the area.



However, they say he ignored the warnings and was killed by gunmen as he drove along the Burnt Savannah main road.



Gayle who was also killed while a woman - who was also in the vehicle - was injured.
