Vendor shot dead in midday gun attack at Falmouth Market

A clothes vendor who was selling at the Falmouth Market in Trelawny was shot and killed by an unknown assailant early Wednesday afternoon.

The deceased has been identified as Wayne Reid of a Hanover address.

Reports are that about 12:30 p.m., Reid was at his stall when he was approached and shot by a lone gunman.

Reid ran from his stall and subsequently collapsed.

The gunman fled from the crime scene.
