A 31-year-old footballer has become the latest victim as the blood-letting continues in Clarendon.

Oniel Rose, otherwise called "Big Dawg" or ‘Wucki Wucki’, of Caanan Heights, May Pen, Clarendon, was shot and killed at a bar on Bustamante Highway in the parish yesterday (July 7).

Reports are that about 1:45pm, Rose was among patrons at the bar, when he was pounced upon by armed men who opened fire, hitting him several times.

He was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Reports are that the victim was a player who represented Sporting Central Academy in the parish and, most recently, Montego Bay United.

It was the second killing within only hours in Clarendon, as early on Sunday morning, a Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) soldier, Private Paul Lindsay, was shot dead in the Clarendon Park/Toll Gate section of the parish where, incidentally, Sporting Central Academy is based.

Police investigations continue into both killings.
