Manchester gun attack leaves one dead, two injured

The bloodletting in Manchester continued on Monday as three men were shot, one fatally, in Christiana in the parish.

The incident occurred three days following the discovery of two men with gunshot wounds in a motorcar in Kendal.

In Monday's incident, it is believed that the three men - who all hail from Brown's Town, St Ann - went to Christiana to enquire about the sale of a motor vehicle, when they were attacked. 

The identity of the deceased man is yet to be released. He was found clad in a multi-coloured shirt, a pair of jeans and a pair of blue slippers.

According to reports, sometime after 3:00 pm, motorists travelling in a section of Christiana saw the body of a man lying on the roadway with what appeared to be bullet wounds. 

The police were summoned and they found two other men nearby, also suffering from gunshot wounds. 

The three wounded men were taken to the hospital, where one was pronounced dead and the others hospitalised.

Robbery is suspected as a motive for the gun attack at this time.

Monday's gun attack follows closely on the heels of the discovery of two men, who were found dead with gunshot wounds in a motor car last Friday in Kendal. One of the deceased men has been identified as 25-year-old Jermaine Francis. His address remains unknown, while the other man remains unidentified. 

Police reports in that incident are that, about 4 pm, a passer-by summoned the police to Cool Shade in Kendal, where a motor car had crashed in nearby bushes.

The police, on their arrival, reportedly found the men in the vehicle with what appeared to be gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead at hospital.
