Police have identified the two men who were shot dead by gunmen in Hannah Town, west Kingston on Tuesday morning.
They are Lance Thompson, 28, otherwise called ‘Jah Jah’ and ‘Bibi’, of an Upper Rose Lane address, and Jevon Ferguson, 30, also known as ‘Pim Pim’, from Upper Oxford Street, both in Hannah Town.
The men were shot dead by gunmen travelling in a motorcar in their community.
Police reports were that about 9:40 am, Thompson and Ferguson were standing along Upper Oxford Street when a Toyota Probox drove up along the roadway and stopped near where they stood.
Three men, the police said, alighted from the vehicle, pulled guns, and opened fire hitting Thompson and Ferguson, both of whom ran and collapsed a short distance away.
The gunmen went back into the vehicle, drove off and escaped. Both injured men were taken to Kingston Public Hospital where they were pronounced dead upon arrival.
Police recovered more than 20 spent casings of 9mm cartridges at the murder scene.
