ST JAMES, Jamaica — Two men have been taken into custody for the brazen gun attack which left 16-year-old Cornwall College student Mark Williams dead in St James on Tuesday.

The police said the two suspects, who were on bail for murder, were arrested on Wednesday in Montego Bay. Their identities are being withheld at this time.

Williams was killed while on his way from Bible study in John's Hall, St James Tuesday night.

It is said that he had just disembarked a taxi at the intersection of Tucker and Meadows of Irwin roads and was heading towards his stepfather’s car when gunmen opened fire at the vehicle.

The student's stepfather is a police corporal.
