The deceased has been identified as Warren Hodges of Bliss Pastures, Wakefield, Trelawny.

Reports are that, at about 8:30 pm, Hodges was standing at his gate when occupants of a motor car that drove up, opened fire hitting him multiple times. Two other persons were also hit. The three were taken to hospital where Hodges was pronounced dead.

The conditions of the two wounded are not considered serious.

It was the second drive-by shooting in the community in recent times. Last month, occupants of a motor car opened fire on a group of men gathered a short distance from the police station.
