FOOTAGE: Shoot-out in Portmore Between Security Guards and Gunmen – Watch Video
A shoot-out between gunmen and security guards ensued in Portmore, St. Catherine earlier today at the Portmore Pines Plaza.
According to reports, the gunmen ambushed a security guard team, Berrylium security, who was stationed at the ATM (automated teller machine) belonging to Scotiabank.
Retaliating to the onslaught, a video that is currently circulating on the internet shows the security team and the gunmen engaged in a standoff and exchanging bullets.
The video was shot from a building across from the plaza and showed men running and taking cover behind cars as bullets ricocheted after being fired. Car alarms were blaring as a car peeled out of the parking lot and a man in a white shirt ran off in the opposite direction.
