Double murder in Denham Town

Two men were shot dead and another injured as criminals carried out a brazen attack in the volatile Denham Town community in Western Kingston on Friday.

The second Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO) was imposed in sections of Denham Town last year.

The dead have been identified as Richard Llewelyn, a 64-year-old unemployed male of a Kingston address, and Nicholas Johnson, 18, of Maxfield Avenue.

Reports are that at about 1:00 p.m., all three persons were walking in a section of the community when men travelling in a white Nissan Tiida motorcar, alighted and opened gunfire, hitting them all.

The three men were rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital, where Llewelyn and Johnson were pronounced dead, and the other man was admitted for treatment.

The Denham Town police are investigating the incident.
