November 30, 2010

GRANVILLE, St James — The Granville Police were forced to call in reinforcement as brazen gunmen this morning peppered the police station with bullets in retaliation for the deadly shooting of 25-year-old Leon Griffiths in the community early this morning.

The militant gunmen, who marched from a hilly section of the community, descended on the police station which they sprayed with gunshots from high-powered firearms, forcing police and civilians who were standing in close proximity to take cover.

Earlier, residents used debris which they set on fire to block several sections of the community.

Several sections of the community were cordoned off by the police.
