Four persons were shot, three fatally following an attack by gunmen who invaded their home in off Waltham Park Road in Kingston, on Wednesday.

Jodian Deer, 16, lost her life when gunmen attacked her home. Also Dead are Tajae Dunbar, 20 and Neville Lewis, 23.

Reports from the police  indicate that approximately 4pm Wednesday June 11, a group of men approached the house and opened fire, hitting the occupants.

The fourth person, a female who remains unidentified, has been admitted to hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. Her condition is not known at this time.

Member of Parliament for St.Andrew South-West, Dr. Angela Brown- Burke, later visited the community and described the incident as another “Unfortunate criminal activity” and called on the government to ensure a more stringent and visible police presence within volatile communities.

The police who are investigating the matter believe that the incident may be gang related.
