Bus driver shot dead on school compound in Hanover

A bus driver was killed on the grounds of Rhodes Hall High School in Orange Bay, Hanover earlier this week.

The police have identified the deceased as 31-year-old Ryan McKenzie, also known as ‘Tall Boss’, of a Westmoreland address. He is the second bus driver to have been killed in Hanover since the start of the year.

Reports are that McKenzie drove on to the school compound to pick up students and had just left his Toyota Coaster bus when he was attacked.

It is understood that two men travelling on a motorcycle sped past the school's security checkpoint onto the compound and opened gunfire at McKenzie.

The Hanover police are investigating.

Hanover recorded its first murder victim of the year in January when another minibus driver was fatally stabbed by two unknown assailants in the transportation centre in the parish capital, Lucea. That bus driver was identified as 43-year-old Carl Amberley, of Greenland, Lucea, Hanover.
