National Security Minister, Dr Horace Chang, says he has given clear orders to the security forces to relentlessly hunt down and bring to justice the “savages” responsible for the brutal triple murders that took place in St Ann and St Catherine over the last 48 hours.
The police are probing the shooting death of an elderly woman and her grandchildren at their home in Tryall Heights in Spanish Town, St Catherine yesterday.
The deceased were identified as 81-year-old Isolyn McFarlane a retiree, six-year-old Mishwan McFarlane and 10-year-old Christiana McFarlane.
In St Ann, while the police were unable to provide details, the bodies of three men were reportedly found along a road in the Yelland community yesterday.
The minister further emphasised that the Government of Jamaica remains resolute in giving support to the security forces in a bid to bring to justice “these perpetrators of violent crimes who seek to create mayhem and reign terror on communities”.
