Bar owner shot dead in Clarendon
A man was killed and two others injured when gunmen invaded a bar on Rectory Road, Bucknor in Clarendon last night.
The deceased has been identified as 29-year-old Troy Rosewell, a bar operator and security guard of Pearl Boulevard in Bucknor.
Rosewell's girlfriend and another man were also shot during the attack.
Reports from the Police are that about 9:15 p.m., the victims were inside a bar operated by Rosewell along Rectory Road, when three men armed with firearms knocked and shouted, “Police, don’t move”.
The culprits then gained entry and proceeded to open gunfire in the direction of the victims, hitting Rosewell multiple times to the head and upper body.
The female was shot in the breast and hand, and the other man shot in the foot.
The culprits escaped in a waiting motorcar.
The police were summoned and the victims were taken to the hospital where Rosewell was confirmed dead, and his girlfriend admitted. The third victim was treated and released.
The Police say security presence has been ramped up in the area, as the incident is likely to spark a reprisal.
Up to May 23, a total of 28 people have been murdered in Clarendon. A total of 18 shooting incidents were also reported to the Police.
