Soup-man gunned down in St. James

A soup vendor was on Wednesday shot and killed in Catherine Hall, St. James around 2:00pm.

The man was identified as Phillip Clarke otherwise who hails from the Salt Spring community in the parish.

Reports from eyewitnesses suggest that the now-deceased was at his shop when a lone gunman approached him and shot him multiple times in the upper body.

The vendor was reportedly holding a child before the attack but released the toddler so they wouldn’t get harmed.

The attackers chased and shot dead the soup vendor and escaped on foot in a nearby lane.

The police were summoned and the vendor was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
