Two houses in Jennings, in the vicinity of Verney’s Shop on Valley main road, were riddled with bullets Thursday morning but the occupants escaped without injury, police sources confirmed.
An occupant of one of the properties, reported to police that he heard the gunshots around 3 a.m. and upon examining the house some time later, he found what appeared to be bullets inside and a broken window.
At the time of the incident, the complainant, 54-year-old Vere Browne, was not in the same area where the shooter(s) opened fire.
Last night, a police source told OBSERVER media investigators found “fragments of bullets in his [Browne’s] kitchen sink and one louvre glass shattered.”
Browne’s neighbour’s home was shot at several times, the police source said.
The house, occupied by Erica Jarvis had five bullet holes at one side and there were also exit points for those holes on another part of the house, according to police sources.
Official confirmation of the shooting also came from Inspector Frankie Thomas who said no one had been arrested up to yesterday afternoon.
Thomas said anyone with information about the incident can contact the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) at 462-3913 or 462-3914.
Residents in the area have expressed concern over the incident and their safety.
