POLICE yesterday held one man and are on the hunt for two others who they say are suspects in yesterday morning’s shootings in Stony Hill, St Andrew, which left three persons dead.
The suspect, whose identity has been withheld, is expected to be questioned today.
Meanwhile, the deceased have been identified as Anthony Johnson, 34; 51-year-old Ragland Flemmings; and 42-year-old Derrick Irving.
The Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) reported that in the first incident, Irving — a shop operator — was at his place of business when a man armed with a handgun sprayed him with bullets.
The police were called to the area, and while carrying out their investigations they were alerted about a second shooting in another section of the rural St Andrew community where the bodies of Johnson and Flemmings were found.
Up to late yesterday, the police did not provide a motive for the killings but said detectives from the Major Investigations Task Force (MIT) were probing the incidents.
Yesterday, worried residents of Stony Hill asked the police to move swiftly with their investigations.
“We really hope the police get to the bottom of this as the reports of the shootings have really left us worried,” said one resident.
