The East Kingston Police are now at the scene of a major shooting in the community of Shoe Lane.

Four persons, including a baby, have been shot and injured following an attack by gunmen shortly after 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.

It is reported that persons were standing in the community when armed thugs invaded and opened fire on them.

Following the shooting, it was discovered that four persons had sustained bullet wounds.

 

A resident who contacted RJR Media Group claimed the attack was in reprisal for the recent firebombing of several homes in the neighbouring Bryan Street off Windward Road.

In that attack, eleven children and eight adults were left homeless when fire gutted the houses they occupied.
