and 25-year-old Dushane Allen, o/c Nigel, for three murders committed in the Bethel Town police area.
“These persons need to report to us immediately. We continue to pursue them relentlessly, and we will not stop until we get them into custody. However, we prefer that these persons report to us right now,” said the commanding officer.
Meanwhile, the following men are being considered as persons of interest, and are being asked to report to the Savanna-la-Mar Police Station immediately.
They are: Courtney Hall, o/c Matthew, of the Savanna-la-Mar area; Jason Harris, o/c Timmy, from the Savanna-la-Mar area; Shawn Smith, o/c Black’s, from the Three Miles area of Frome and Alistair Drummond, o/c Al, from the Savanna-la-Mar area.
“We are searching for these persons, and we asked that they come in, because we believe that they can aid us with investigations into shootings, murders and involvement in criminal gang running,” said Superintendent McKenzie.
