There was a time in Jamaican when even the most ardent gangsters in Jamaica kept a small King James version of the New Testament Bible in their back pocket. Those days even the most vile criminals on the island saw the church as being sacred and the grounds were considered holy and demanded respect. Those days are gone. Today when a gangster wants you, even in the church they will come for you.
One church member was shot and killed this morning when a gunman entered the Agape Christian Fellowship Church in Falmouth and fired several shots during the usual Sunday morning worship.
According to a worshipper, about 10:30 she heard explosions in the building and later saw a woman falling to the ground.
“We were in the church singing and I heard several explosions and saw a woman falling to the ground,” she told a Jamaican news outlet.
The woman was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead. A strong police presence is now at the scene of the incident.
