In a daring daytime attack, one security guard was shot dead by gunmen and another left in serious condition this morning (February 27) at the Portmore Pines Plaza in St Catherine.

In the aftermath of the shooting, described by some witnesses as a scene out of a movie, the gunmen had reportedly escaped with cash in a white Subaru motor vehicle.

While the injured security guard was taken to hospital, a third member of the Berrylium team did not require treatment.

Speaking with Our Today, Senior Superintendent of Police Stephanie Lindsay, head of the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, confirmed the incident, but could not immediately provide further details.
