THE gloom on the faces of the residents of Belloc Avenue in Duhaney Park told a grim story.

The residents are neighbours of O'Neil Edwards — part of the dancehall trio Voice Mail — who is now in hospital battling for life.

Edwards was ambushed and shot repeatedly as he attempted to open his gate after returning home about 1:00 this morning.

Neighbours said they hoped Edwards would survive the ordeal.

"I just really hope that he makes it, trust me," said one of a group of persons who had gathered outside Edwards home this morning.

Residents say two gunmen were seen running away from the scene. Edwards was found lying on his back in a pool of blood in his backyard. He was shot at least five times.
