Newton Street has been the scene of several shooting murders over the years. A drive-by shooting on Tuesday claimed the life of a Duncans, Trelawny man.
One man was gunned down and a female shot and injured during an attack by unknown assailants travelling in a motorcar in Falmouth, Trelawny on Tuesday night.
The deceased has been identified as 25-year-old Andrae Bodden, also called Blacks, of a Duncans, Trelawny address. Reports are that about 8:10 pm, Bodden was standing along Newton Street in Falmouth when two men jumped out of a white Nissan Tiida car and started firing a barrage of shots.
After the shooting died down, Bodden and a female, who was in the vicinity, were found suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both taken to the Falmouth Public General Hospital where Bodden was pronounced dead and the female admitted for treatment.
Her condition is not considered life threatening.
