MEMBERS of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) yesterday joined members of the clergy on a tour of McIntyre Villa in east Kingston where four people, including a 17-month-old baby, were fatally shot in a series of tit-for-tat gang attacks last week.

Shain O'Connor, a pastor from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, led a prayer meeting with residents of the community, also kown as "Dunkirk", who were traumatised by the events.

"The aim of the visit is to reach out to residents in the area," said O'Connor.

Assistant Commissioner of Police George Quallo, who is in charge of Area Four, was among the cops on hanbd.

Meanwhile, the police have released the names of two men who they say are wanted in connection with the Valentine's Day killings as well as other murders in the area. They are Damion Samuels and another man known only as 'Weeble'.

Samuels and 'Weeble' are wanted in connection with last Friday's murders of Demar Anthony McKenzie, otherwise called 'Biggs', and 17-month-old Threjan Harvey at 2 Swan Lane in McIntyre Villa.

The police are also seeking Clifton Morris, otherwise called 'Travis' and 'Badda Don', and Carlington Williams, otherwise called 'Black Bottle', in connection with the February 12 double murder of Owen Lovemore, alias 'Bappo', and Everton Evans, otherwise called 'Donovan', on Higholborn Street.

Morris is of fair complexion, slim build, has black lips and sports a plaited hairstyle, while Williams is described as having a small head, a small frame and of fair complexion.

Also on the police wanted list are Clive Abrahams — otherwise called 'Kemar', 'Cute One', and 'Porto' — and Christopher Robinson, also known as 'Cardo'. The duo is wanted for the murder of Ricardo Findley, otherwise called 'Prince', on February 16 in the vicinity of Home-style Steamed Fish Restaurant on the Majesty Gardens main road.

Abrahams is said to be of fair complexion, slim build, and is about 5 feet 4 inches tall. He has a small face, a straight nose, a small mouth, is of Indian descent and has long, curly hair. He appears to be about 21 years old, police have said.

Robinson, meanwhile, is of dark complexion, medium build, and is about five feet nine inches tall. He is knock-kneed, has a tattoo on one shoulder, sports a low hair-cut and is approximately 19 years old.

A man known only as 'One Son' is also featured on the list. He is wanted for the February 17 murder of Rupert Robinson — whose aliases are 'Ray' and 'Raymond' — in Majesty Gardens, Kingston 11.

Police are asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the men to call them at 119.
