KINGSTON, Jamaica — Thirty-year-old upholsterer of Arnett Garden and community hero, Kemar Campbell, otherwise called ‘Doggie’, has been charged with murder and other offences in relation to the death of two men from the same area, on June 29.
The police have confirmed charges on Friday after Campbell, who was named on this week’s edition of Wanted Wednesdays, turned himself in the following day.
The victims of the June incident are Clayton Bryan, 34, of Woodrow Street in Kingston 12, and Jovanie Thompson, a labourer of Septimus Street, Jones Town, also in Kingston 12.
Reports from the Denham Town Police are that at about 9:50 pm, the now deceased men were aboard a motorcycle when Campbell opened fire at them. The men were taken to the Kingston Public Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
Campbell was also charged with shooting with intent, illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.
Campbell was praised as a hero after rescuing a Jamaica Public Service (JPS) contractor who was being electrocuted on top of a light pole in Trench Town in February.
The JPS contractor later died from his injuries.
