Man shot dead at Sav shop; 125 murders in Westmoreland since Jan 1

Police blotters indicate that 125 murders have been committed in the once peaceful parish of Westmoreland since the start of the year.

The figure has given the parish the dubious distinction as the parish with the most murders committed in western Jamaica over the period.

The latest murder victim has been identified as 37-year-old Floyd Henry of West End in Negril, Westmoreland. He was attacked and slaughtered by gunmen on Wednesday, November 28.

The Savanna-la-mar Police report that about 9:00 pm on Wednesday, Henry was among a group of patrons at a shop, when armed men struck.

The men opened fire on the patrons, hitting Henry all over his body.

The police transported Henry to the Savanna-la-mar hospital where he was pronounced dead.
