It was a night of terror in St James last night as another 12 people were shot, four fatally. 

The heavy rains were not enough to stop the crime spree in the parish.

The incidents began in Granville, where seven persons were wounded as gunmen went on a 30-minute shooting spree.




Two of those wounded later died.

Then about 9 p.m.,  gunmen invaded Felicity Road in Glendevon, where a mother and her 11-month-old baby were shot and seriously injured.

Some time later, gunmen invaded Mud Valley in Anchovy, shot and killed two men and injured a third person.


Residents say it was a horrifying experience as the shooting lasted for several minutes.

St James has now recorded more than 290 murders since the start of the year, making 2017 its bloodiest year.
