Double Murder In Manchester


Community members from Three Chains district, Manchester, reacted with deep shock and grief after two men from the community were shot dead there on Saturday, October 13.

Dead are: twenty-year-old Matthew Johnson and 36-year-old Damion Britton both of Three Chains district.

Reports from the Mandeville police are that about 11: 00 a.m., Britton, Johnson and two others were in the community when two men alighted from a motor vehicle and opened gunfire on the group before fleeing. Britton and Johnson fell by the roadside. One of them had a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

Relatives and friends quickly arrived at the scene and began videotaping the scene. One woman related to one of the men was inconsolable.

On arrival of the lawmen, all four persons were seen with gunshot wounds. They were taken to hospital where Britton and Johnson were pronounced dead and the other two admitted in critical condition.

Investigations continue.
