At least two men have succumbed to gunshot wounds after a shooting incident in the West Kingstown community of Montrose on Monday.

Another man, one of the shooters, was shot by an ex police officer and is in surgery at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, police say.

Dead are E’Lon Barbour and Daniel Skerrit.

Reports are that Barbour and Skerrit were on the public road in Montrose with other individuals when two masked gunmen emerged and opened fire on them, hitting them several times with gunshots.

An ex police officer who was on the scene then opened fire on the gunmen and shot one of them.

The incident occurred at around 5:40 p.m.

The incident comes on the same day the nation was shaken by the revelation that the body of a female found dismembered in a bag on the side of the road on May 12 is that of Sion Hill/Walvaroo teen, Precious Williams.

The police are investigating the matter.

This information was compiled by both One News St. Vincent and Asbert News Network – ANN after careful inquiry from the police and members of the local community in Montrose.
