Two vendors shot and killed in Coronation Market attack


Two vendors were last night shot and killed and another person injured at Coronation Market, downtown Kingston.

Police have identified the victims as Sonia Bennett, 54-year-old and Dane McDonald,34.

Reports reaching Loop News are that at about 10:00pm on Wednesday, June 21, a group of vendors were at the facility packing up their goods when gunmen went to the location and opened fire and then ran from the area.

“The men just come to the area and started to fire in every direction,” said one alleged eye witness.

When the shooting ended three persons were found suffering from gunshot wounds. They were rushed to hospital where the two vendors were pronounced dead.

The shooting is the latest in a series of attacks carried out by gang members who are locked in a deadly feud in the West Kingston area.
