Commuters duck for cover

No Comments

Commuters were sent scampering for cover when a man employed by the St Ann Municipal Corporation was shot and injured at the Ocho Rios Transportation Centre on Wednesday afternoon.

The transport centre is barely 150 metres from the Ocho Rios Police Station.

The injured man has been hospitalised in a stable condition.

Preliminary reports are that sometime after 1:00 p.m., the municipal worker was collecting fees in the park when he was pounced upon and shot in the neck by an armed man.

The hoodlum managed to take a small sum of money from his victim before fleeing the scene.

The injured man was then assisted to the hospital.

The Ocho Rios police are now investigating the daring incident and searching for the attacker.
