Awakened by explosions and screams in August Town on Wednesday morning, Hyacinth Brown’s* memories rolled back to the 2018 death of her grandson and she wondered if gunmen had made good on their promise to return for blood.
Brown, a 30-year resident of August Town, told The Gleaner.
“From dem kill my cousin 2018 right at the gate deh so, mi fraid and a look out for this,” a female resident, who requested anonymity because of security concerns, said.
Fayval Williams, St Andrew Eastern member of parliament who represents August Town, is concerned about the wanton killings in the violence-plagued neighbourhood.
I would like to tell the residents, do not get weary,” Williams told The Gleaner.
