THE POLICE GOT an earful from the few residents they visited in their meet-and-greet walk through the troubled St Michael district of The Ivy last night.
Residents told the police team, which was led by Acting Assistant Commissioners Eucklyn Thompson and Erwin Boyce, how they feared for their safety and wanted those responsible for the gun violence caught.
“Around 1:30, 2:30 on mornings you hear bare gunshots,” said a woman on Ivy Main Road. “And if they’re not shooting, they does pelt big rocks and bottles,” she told Thompson, showing him a window they had to replace after a bullet went through it.
The woman, who declined to give her name, said she welcomed the increased police presence and was hoping for a speedy end to the disturbances.
