Five men were on Friday (June 26) taken into custody in connection with the death of two men from John’s Hall in Clarendon.
The men were taken into custody in relation to the shooting death of two men on the Frankfield main road about 4:40 p.m. the same day.
Reports are that shortly after the death of the two men, police were given information that the assailants had sped off in two motorcars, a white car and a grey car.
About an hour after the incident, five men in two vehicles matching the description of the vehicles seen leaving the scene were intercepted by two police teams at the Mineral Heights Toll Plaza in the parish.
The men, all with St. Catherine addresses, were taken into custody and the vehicles seized. During a subsequent search of the vehicles, a 9mm pistol with an empty magazine and one .40 pistol with magazine containing six .40 live rounds were found.
The dead men have been identified as Jermaine Jones, 33, and Allen Cameron, otherwise called ‘Puss’, both of John’s Hall, Silver Spring, Clarendon.
They were reportedly driving along the roadway, when they were pounced upon by armed men travelling in a motor car who opened gunfire hitting them.
