Earlier today Monday, July 4th at around 1: 00 pm, a fatal incident occurred in St. Ann’s Bay on Cemetery Road in St. Ann.
The incident as reported by the Jamaica Observer on their Instagram account had to do with a disagreement that ensued because of a bottle of water. The argument ended with one man dead and another in the hands of the police.
Sources from Jamaica Observer online relay that a man in his thirties was at his workplace, The Santa Gloria restaurant, when he got into a squabble with a deliveryman who had come by to deliver food.
Allegedly, the deliveryman inflicted an injury via knife wound to the neck of the restaurant employee before he beat a hasty retreat. He was later on captured by the police and investigations into the matter are underway.
