2 killed in stone-throwing incidents within weeks in St Ann

A second man has died in the parish of St Ann within weeks as a result of separate stone-throwing incidents.

The deceased in the latter incident is a 50-year-old farmer, Delroy Turner, otherwise called Napky, from Kensington district in Alexandria.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said Turner died from injuries he received during a dispute in his community on Sunday, July 15.

It further explained: “Reports from the Alexandria Police are that, about 8:30pm, Turner and another man were at an event in their community when a dispute developed among them and other family members.

“It is alleged that both men began throwing stones at each other, when Turner was hit in the head. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead,” the JCF said, adding that investigations are continuing.

Minister of National Security Dr Horace Chang, last week, condemned the murder of Turner, adding that special focus will have to be placed on the issue of domestic violence.

Meanwhile, the first fatal stone-throwing incident in the parish recently happened at a party in the community of Salem on June 10, but the victim died in hospital on July 3.

He is 24-year-old sanitation worker Kavon Fullerton, otherwise called Scappy, from Hampstead district in Runaway Bay, St Ann. FILE PHOTO.
