MANCHESTER, Jamaica — Police are investigating a drive-by shooting in the community of Brockrey in Manchester where a teenager was killed and his 17-year-old cousin injured last night.

The community is located on the outskirts of Christiana.

Relatives identified the deceased as 14-year-old Ricardo Ashley otherwise called 'Deshawn'.

Reports are that shortly after 7:00 pm, both teens were in a car awaiting Ashley's father, who had gone into a shop in the community, when the occupants of a Toyota Axio opened gunfire on the stationary vehicle.

The attackers fled the scene.
