A six-year-old boy was shot dead on Saturday during an attempted robbery and drive-by shooting in Duhaney Park, Kingston.
The incident happened about 7:30am on Thetford Avenue.
It is believed the child was in his father’s car when a group of men travelling in a White Toyota Probox cornered the vehicle that they were in.
The father managed to elude the men before they fired several shots in the direction of the motorcar.
The child was later discovered with a gunshot wound to the head.
He was rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
