The police in St James have vowed to bring to justice the man responsible for Monday morning's gun slaying of popular Montego Bay mortician, 31-year-old Chrissy Vaughan.
"He (killer) is known to the persons who were there (crime scene ) and we think that in very short order he will be brought to justice," head of operations at the St James Police Division, acting Superintendent of Police, Gary McKenzie told members of the western Jamaica media fraternity, at a press conference at the Freeport Police Station on Monday afternoon.
The shooting occurred sometime after 2 am, outside a club in Bogue Village, St James, where Vaughan was among a group of patrons when a fight broke out between two members.
One of the two reportedly took out a gunand fired, shooting the mortician in her head, as she sought to flee the scene in her motorcar. She lost control of the vehicle which slammed into a sidewalk.
The police discovered Vaughan slumped around the steering wheel of the vehicle, suffering from gunshot wound. She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
"Early this morning, the police were notified that an explosion was heard in the Bogue Village area. Based on what we gather so far, persons were at a club. They are known to each other and the understanding is that a dispute developed and one person drew a firearm and fired shots, one of which caught her," DSP McKenzie related.
