Two men shot dead in separate incidents in St Ann, St Thomas

The police are probing the shooting deaths of two men, including a senior citizen, in separate incidents in St Thomas and St Ann on Thursday night.

The deceased have been identified as 70-year-old Nathaniel Brown of Hampton Court, St Thomas, and 52-year-old Nigel Marsh of Great Pond in Ocho Rios, St Ann.

In the first incident, Brown was riding home on a bicycle at about 8pm, when he was pounced upon by gunmen who shot him. He later succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Three hours later, Marsh's bullet-riddled body was found on Back Street in Great Pond by law enforcers.

Reports are that at about 11pm, residents of the community heard loud explosions and called them. On their arrival, Marsh was seen with gunshot wounds to the face and the right hand.

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

No motive has yet been established in relation to either killing.
