A 29-year-old man was shot and killed early on Friday morning while driving through McCullough Corner.
The homicide took place around 2.30am. Officer in charge of the Central Detective Unit, Chief Superintendent Paul Rolle, said the victim was driving off East Street when several men attempted to stop him.
“Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 29-year-old male of Yellow Elder Gardens,” Supt Rolle said. “The male was driving a 1993 Toyota Corolla in the area when persons attempted to stop him,” Supt Rolle said.
