No mo­tive yet for Port­more mur­ders

Jamaica Gleaner - - SOCIAL -

UP TO yes­ter­day, the po­lice had yet to de­ter­mine a mo­tive for the mur­ders of two per­sons in Port­more, St Cather­ine, dur­ing a barefaced shooting in­ci­dent last Satur­day.

The lives of 46-year-old Calvin Archibald of Hell­shire Drive and Chris­tine Smith of a Tele­phone Close ad­dress, also in Port­more, were snuffed out by the same gun­men in two in­ci­dents.

Re­ports from the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit of the Ja­maica Con­stab­u­lary Force are that Archibald was stand­ing on the road­way near his res­i­dence with three other men when two gun­men opened fire hit­ting them.

The gun­men re­port­edly left the spot where their vic­tims lay in­jured and headed nearby to Tele­phone Close, where they forced en­try to Smith’s home, shooting her mul­ti­ple times.

They were all taken to hos­pi­tal, where Archibald and Smith were pro­nounced dead.
