(Antigua Observer) No suspects were in police custody up to last night for the shooting death of Campbell Jackson and the shooting of his son, national footballer Jari Jackson and his friend Tevin George.
And contrary to information making the rounds, to include photographs labelling three men as suspects, the police say they have not identified these individuals as suspects in the murder.
OBSERVER media was told, “If it doesn’t come from STRATCOM – the police’s strategic communications office – it isn’t official.”
Lawmen, however, confirmed that the 66-year-old businessman, who operated a car rental business from his home in Green Bay, was gunned down around 10 pm on Thursday while he was sitting on the stairs outside the house along with the other two shooting victims.
The police said that anyone with further information is asked to get in contact with Gray’s Farm Police Station at 462-0841/562-6088, or call the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913/462-3914.
A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told OBSERVER media that she had heard several gunshots ring out but she did not go outside immediately. She said she looked out and then shortly afterwards, she heard people shouting in the Hillcrest Road.
