Dramatic killing of JUTC worker; bus service reportedly withdrawn
The dramatic killing of an employee of the state-owned Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) in New Kingston on Tuesday morning, has reportedly led to a withdrawal of service by the company’s bus operators.
Reports are that the employee was standing near one of the company’s buses close by Emancipation Park, when men drove up in a motor vehicle and shot him several times.
The attackers then fled the scene.
The worker was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
On Monday night there were conflicting reports about the stabbing incident, including mention of a JUTC bus.
“Right now JUTC operators and taxi operators on strike, leaving commuters stranded,” a source told Loop News.
