Police are investigating yet another killing.
Dead is Ricardo Christmas originally from Dominica.
According to reports, the 32-year-old man was shot twice in the head on Tanner Street Wednesday night.
He died on the spot.
A motive for the attack is not yet known.
This is the eighth murder since the start of the year and comes on the heels of a double killing in Gray’s Farm earlier this week.
EARLIER REPORT: A man was shot dead on Tanner Street on Wednesday night as he played a game of dominoes.
A lone assailant reportedly walked up to the domino table and opened fire shortly before 10 pm.
The man was shot three times and died on the spot while another domino player was also shot, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening.
The gunman then fled on foot in the area. Police are asking anyone with information on the killing to contact the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913 or 462-3914.
This takes the country’s homicide count for the year to eight and comes hot on the heels of Monday’s double murder in Grays Farm.
