LITTLE LONDON, Westmoreland — A Negril hotelier is offering a reward of $100,000 to anyone who can assist the police with information leading to the capture of the men who murdered one of his employees.
Dane “Blushie” Foote, operator of Foote Prints on the Sands Hotel, offered the bounty after gunmen shot dead 36-year-old Tracy Humes and injured two men in an attack Sunday night in Little London, leaving a pall of grief hanging over the community.
Humes, whom Foote described as a good worker, was at home with two other people when they were peppered with bullets by two gunslingers about 10:30 pm.
The three ran in different directions for cover upon the approach of the trigger-happy gunmen.
When the police arrived, their blood-soaked bodies were found riddled with gunshot wounds.
They were rushed to hospital where Humes was pronounced dead and the two men admitted in serious condition.
The Little London police, who are investigating, say they are yet to determine what triggered the deadly attack.
Humes’s killing has pushed Westmoreland’s murder tally to 11 since the start of the year, four more than the seven recorded over the corresponding period last year.
