SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica — Police say they have identified a number of suspects behind the July 28 attack against a 60-year-old woman, who was shot and her house firebombed on Featherbed Lane in Spanish Town.

"The attack stems from an ongoing feud in sections of that area the police have since identified a number of suspects," said Anthony Castel, head of the St Catherine North police division.

Castel said that the names are to be released later today.

 He also warned that police would be clamping down on players in the recent flare up.
