A church community is now mourning the lost of two of its members after a pastor and a deacon were yesterday shot and killed in Montego Bay, St. James yesterday.

The deceased have been identified as 27 year old pastor, Ryan Jackson and 23 year old Deacon, Buckclair Smith; both of Rose Heights, St James.


Reports are that the victims were on the road purchasing tiles at a hardware store, shortly after 6:00 pm – when they were approached by two armed gunmen who opened fire on them,  killing both on the spot.

A team of patrol officers who were in the area heard the gun shots and went to investigate which lead to a stand off between the assailants and the police.

One of the gunman was subsequently shot and injured during the altercation and a 9mm pistol was taken from him. The other gunman managed to escape.
