UPDATE: Westmoreland man killed by gunmen identified
WESTMORELAND, Jamaica— The police have identified a man who was shot dead by unknown assailants at Gordon, Whitehouse in Westmoreland on Monday evening.
He is 21-year-old Javaughn Foster, otherwise called “Cuttu” from the community.
Reports from the police are that at 3:00 pm, Foster was sitting on a blue Suzuki Access motorcycle, which was parked in the vicinity of his baby mother’s house along the Gordon main road, when a lime green Toyota Axio motorcar coming from the direction of Top Gordon stopped where Foster was.
The occupants of the Axio, the police said, then opened gunfire at Foster hitting him several times to his chest region. The now-deceased ran towards the back of his child’s mother house, where he collapsed.
The lime green motorcar reportedly then sped off in the direction of upper Gordon. Foster was assisted to the Black River Public General Hospital by citizens, where he was pronounced dead.
Investigations are ongoing.
