KINGSTON, Jamaica _ Jamaican police say three teenage boys and one man have been shot and killed in a public housing complex in central Jamaica.
The department says the youths apparently were walking along a roadway Wednesday night when two gunmen hustled them into accounting clerk Marquis Hamilton’s apartment.
Police said Thursday Hamilton and the boys were fatally shot when the armed pair’s “demands were not met.” Police did not disclose a motive or other specifics. There have been no arrests.
Last month, Police Commissioner Carl Williams said he was sending more officers into island hot spots to combat a worrying increase in killings.
