Three killed at JLP rally

Three killed at JLP rally

Last night during a JLP mass rally in Sam Sharpe Square, Montego Bay shots rang out during Andrew Holness’ speech.

The opposition leader was assisted quickly off the stage to safety and when the smoke cleared, three people were dead with four others hospitalized.

Dr Horace Chang, JLP general secretary, confirmed last night that three men were killed and four others, including a woman, were hospitalised.

Among those killed was a man police say was on the wanted list Javin Cmapvblle otherwise called Javinci.

Reports from head of St James Police SSP Steve McGregor said the shooting occurred as a result of an altercation.

When news surfaced about the shooting there were speculations that it could have been politically motivated, but subsequent reports are now pointing to some kind fo gang feud.

Holness’ security detail immediately ran to his side and surrounded him. He was ushered off the stage. The same thing happened with the other JLP personnel minutes later.

Ironically the only persons who were protected were the leader and JLP personnel…so those who go to these meetings are left on their own…lesson anyone?
