Mother and son shot dead in Westmoreland
Saturday, April 27, 2013

WESTMORELAND, Jamaica – Detectives assigned to the Westmoreland police division have commenced investigations to determine the circumstances which led to the shooting death of a woman and her son and the shooting of another, in Newtown, Geneva, Westmoreland Saturday morning.
Dead are 34-year-old Keriesha Ricketts and nine-year-old Jafe Francis. Another son, who is 12-years-old, was shot and inured.
Reports from the Morgan’s Bridge Police are that about 1:20am Ricketts was at home with her common-law husband when they noticed fire coming from a chicken coop outside. They both went outside to extinguish the blaze when Rickett’s was shot. Her spouse ran to get help and upon his return discovered that Jafe and his other son were also shot.
The police were summoned and the victims taken to the hospital where Ricketts and Jafe were pronounced dead and the other son admitted in stable condition.

    Doesn’t make any sense. She got shot and he ran and left her? Did he also bring both his sons outside at 1 in the morning? I doubt it. So then how did they also end up getting shot? Common chicken thieves wouldn’t shoot the children. In his running, he also ran and left his kids and not protect them?
    I’m calling bullshit on this one!

    He looks very suspect to me. They should take the path US police take.Look very closely at the spouse/boyfriend /family member first.

    The Observer had a better write-up on this story in today’s paper.

    I agree the original news article was incomplete, but the information presented does not give anyone the license to make ridiculous comments about the father/victim. Did we expect the father to defend himself/family against (armed ) thugs with guns? The father at the behest of his wife, went to get assistance his wife’s brother after she was shot. Luckily, his two daughters were unharmed during this rampage by these cold blooded killers.
