It was a bloody Christmas day in May Pen, Clarendon as gunmen shot and killed a car wash operator in a brazen broad daylight attack.

The dead man has since been identified as 36-year-old Miruts Milton, otherwise called ‘Ghetto’, of Harris Street in May Pen.

According to reports, residents heard loud explosions in the vicinity of Howard Avenue in the town shortly after midday on Monday.

The police were summoned and Milton dead body was found lying face down in a pool of blood.

The police have yet to determine a motive for the killing.
