The Trelawny Police have made a significant breakthrough in an attempted murder case with the arrest of Randane Gibson, otherwise called ‘Jason’, a 36-year-old chef of Bounty Hall, Trelawny.

Gibson faces multiple charges stemming from an incident that occurred on October 30, 2019, in Sawyers District, in the parish. The charges include:

  • Attempted Murder
  • Possession of a Prohibited Weapon
  • Use of a Prohibited Weapon with Intent to Injure
  • Use of a Firearm to Commit a Felony

Reports are that about 11:00 a.m., a woman was at her shop when Gibson, with whom she had a dispute earlier, opened gunfire outside her shop.

Gibson fled the scene with the firearm.

The woman reported the incident to the police.
