Business operators in Frankfield, Clarendon are on edge following a series of daring robberies and shootings by heavily armed criminals in recent weeks.

In the latest incident last evening, 65-year-old farmer Fitzroy Miller was reportedly shot and killed metres from the Frankfield Police Station.

According to an eyewitness, Miller was shot by a group of gunmen travelling in a motorcar who opened fire on a bar minutes after they robbed a nearby wholesale located opposite the police station.

One business operator who spoke to The Gleaner-Power 106 News Centre revealed that in recent weeks several businesses have been robbed, adding that her business place was robbed just two weeks ago.

Superintendent Warren Turner, who is in charge operations for the parish, says the spent shells recovered following yesterday’s shooting incidents revealed that they were fired from high-powered weapons.

Turner appealed to person with information to contact him at 832-3665, police emergency 119 or the nearest police station.
