Taxi driver Dwayne Marrett, also known as ‘Paul’ was shot and killed in Falmouth on Tuesday night. He was 36-year old when he died.
Marrett was shot in his motor car which also contained passengers. The incident occurred on Seaboard Street in Falmouth, Trelawny at around 8:40 pm.
Reports are that Paul had just loaded his vehicle in Water Square and was driving on Seaboard Street. That street has a deep gutter and vehicles have to slow down to cross it. It is while he slowed down that a gunman approached him on foot and fired hitting the taxi driver several times.
After he was hit, he lost control of the car and it hit into a wall. The police was summoned and Marret’s body was found in the car.
A motive is yet to be established for the killing.
