Two people were shot dead and several others injured in Gordon Town, St. Andrew on Tuesday, police have confirmed.
Police said several gunmen walked up to the food shop where several persons were standing and opened fire, killing Raymond Palmer, 27, and Demoy Foster, 30. Both men are residents of Gordon Town.
The incident occurred at about 6 p.m.
Two others were treated at a hospital. Their current medical status is unknown.
The shoot has sparked fears of reprisal among Gordon Town residents but a high-ranking police official said the victims were found to have been targeted — it was not a random shooting.
