Brittons Hill walk-through

20160616_142441Police are at this hour conducting a walk-through of areas of the volatile Brittons Hill, St Michael community.
The walk-through, which started at Valery, comes on the heels of at least two recent shooting deaths of persons with strong links to the area.
Today, residents complained about an influx of drugs and firearms, as police promised to step up their presence in the community.
Last Friday, 25-year-old Kadeem Joseph of 2nd Avenue Grazettes, St Michael was found dead around 4 a.m. at the rear of the Brittons Hill, Resource Centre. His untimely passing came immediately on the heels of Wednesday night’s shooting death of 23-year-old Rico Reid, who was shot and killed while waiting to board the Jolly Roger.
Lawmen are also probing a shooting incident at Forde’s Road, in which the victim  – 40-year-old Shawn Lorde of Brittons Hill – was shot in his right leg.  Lorde and other persons were sitting under a tree when an unknown assailant fired several rounds. Lorde was injured and was transported to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital. His injury was not deemed life-threatening.
