Three 'robbers' killed by licensed firearm holder in Portmore

Portmore residents are saying it was like a scene out of the 'Gunfight at the O.K. Corral'. And when the smoke cleared, a licensed firearm holder had shot and killed three men during an attack Wednesday night at his home in the municipality. 

"Reports are that there was a robbery attempt at the home of a licensed firearm holder in Portmore last night about 9:15 pm. He pulled up in his driveway and he was shot, but was able to return fire and killed three of his attackers. He is now in serious condition," a representative of the Constabulary Communication Unit told Loop News reporter Claude Mills. 

A Beretta pistol and 17 rounds of ammunition were seized following the incident, according to the police.

The licensed firearm holder was admitted in hospital.
