Triple murder off Waltham Park Road

Three people, including a 16-year-old girl, were shot and killed by gunmen in an early morning attack off Waltham Park Road in St Andrew on Wednesday.

The deceased have been identified as 20-year-old higgler, Tajay Dunbar; 23-year-old Neville Lewis; and 16-year-old Jody Ann Deer.

Another female was shot and injured in the incident, and has been admitted to hospital in serious condition.

Reports are that about 4:00 am, the four were at home along Harvey Road - located off Waltham Park Road in Kingston 13 - when armed men kicked in their door and opened gunfire at them.

The gunmen made their escape and the injured persons taken to hospital where three out of the four were pronounced dead.

Detectives from the Major Investigation Division, who are probing the incident, are theorising that the attack may have been gang related.

Meanwhile, head of the St Andrew South Police, Superintendent Gary Francis, is reminding residents of Harvey Road and surrounding communities that Crime Stop offers rewards for information on gangs and guns. 

Persons who call 311 can earn up to $100, 000 for information that leads to the seizure of a gun. Persons may also contact C-TOC at 876-967-1389 to give information on gangs.

He is encouraging persons to share any information they have with the police.

“Partner with us to create safer communities,” he said.
