Residents of Rock Fort in East Kingston were awakened by gun fire early this morning from which a man is said to have been killed.
The shooting occurred at 4am on Windward Road between two of the most feared roads in the volatile corridor – Lucus Road and Oliver Road – right next to a big yellow building near the Rock Fort Police Station.
A section of the roadway beside the former supermarket building was blocked by the police as they processed the crime scene. The roadway has since reopened to traffic.
An officer from the police Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) confirmed the shooting but was not sure if the man had died as he had not received the report.
