Shooting has family uneasy
THE SIGHT of a dead man lying in the street outside their door and of five bullet holes in their Clarke’s Gap, Spooner’s Hill home has left a St Michael family shaken.
While not giving their names, the family spoke of being summoned to their home by police who wanted to gain entry to remove bullets that had entered the house.
A young woman who spoke on behalf of the family said: “It is kind of insane to come home to find someone dead on your step and find your house shot up. Spooner’s Hill is not a bad area . . . . It is by no means a super-violent area so to get a call like that is a shocker.”
One of the bullets pierced this window. The family expressed relief that none of them was at home when the incident occurred.
The shooting took place in the early hours of Sunday at a fete at the nearby Uprising Sports Bar. Partygoers and residents said they heard two sets of gunshots.
Jamaine Williams was shot dead, while Anthony “Platinum” Hewitt was hospitalised with bullet wounds. (LK)
