KINGSTON, Jamaica, Tuesday December 22, 2015 – A former Spanish Town Mayor has been hospitalized in serious condition with multiple gunshot wounds after being shot at his home yesterday morning.
Dr. Raymoth Notice was at his home in Bog Walk, West Prospect in the southeastern parish of St. Catherine when he was held at gunpoint by men demanding money.
Reports indicate that the former prison doctor resisted and was shot several times.
The current Mayor of Spanish, Town Norman Scott, has urged lawmen to leave no stones unturned in their hunt for the gun men.
Leader of the opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) of which Notice is a member, said the attack was a “frightening but telling reminder of just how vulnerable we are as law-abiding citizens to the criminal elements in our midst”.
“They roam our communities without fear and don’t seem to be letting up in their reign of unspeakable horror and crime. As peace-loving Jamaicans, we must rise up against these vicious criminals and send an unmistakable sign that we are resolved to living in a peaceful, prosperous and orderly society,” he said in a statement.
