The bloodletting continues unabated in St James with three murders being recorded in two days.

On Wednesday afternoon, a man was brutally gunned down at his home in Farm Hill in the parish.

He has been identified as 26-year-old Shavon Green otherwise called ‘Shavy Don’.

The Freeport police report that at about 3:00 pm, Green was at home when gunmen barged in and began shooting, hitting him several times. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No motive has yet been established for the killing but investigators told OBSERVER ONLINE that they are pursuing leads into the matter.

Green’s death comes just hours after the shooting deaths of two other men in the parish.
