Couple Trying To Purchase Gun Murdered(graphic Image)


Detectives assigned to the Spanish Town Criminal Investigation Branch are prob­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the shoot­ing deaths of a man and a woman on Old Harbour Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine on Thursday. Those killed are 21-year-old Vaughn Smith, oth­er­wise called ‘Mr. Cool’, and 19-year-old Serena Kerr, both of Shelter Rock in Spanish Town. The police say about 2:30 p.m, res­i­dents heard explo­sions in the area went to inves­ti­gate and dis­cov­ered the bodies.The police say Smith and Kerr were found lying in blood with gun­shot wounds to the upper body.

As per usu­al, the report to the police is just that it will take time for a full inves­tiga­tive nar­ra­tive to take shape., so we await the results of a full inves­ti­ga­tion.
In the mean­time, the streets are talk­ing and the sto­ry being told while sad caus­es one to won­der what was the dece­dent Vaughn Smith’s inten­tion?
Word on the streets is that Vaughn encour­aged Serena to accom­pa­ny him to go pur­chase a gun and that did not go so well.
Unconfirmed reports indi­cate the young cou­ple was robbed of their cash and then mur­dered by the men who were sup­posed to sell them the weapon/​s.

It is always sad when some­one los­es his or her life, nev­er­the­less, these are some of the con­se­quences of those kinds of actions.
If the report­ing is cor­rect, one has to assume that the inten­tion of the deceased were less than pure.
As trag­ic as this case is, it may very well be a case of ear­ly kar­ma.
