(CMR) A Jamaican fugitive recently deported from the Cayman Islands has been charged with murder by the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
Rudolph ‘Boxer' Shaw, considered to be one of the most wanted men in St Catherine, was charged with murder and shooting with intent on Monday.
Reports are that at about 2:45 pm, on 29 September 2021, 59-year-old Wilfred O'Connor, a carpenter of St John's Road in St Catherine, was standing in his yard when a Nissan AD Wagon motor car drove up with armed men aboard. The men exited the vehicle and opened gunfire, hitting him.
The gunmen then drove to another section of the community where they fired several shots, hitting four men who were standing along a roadway.
All five persons were taken to the hospital where O'Connor was pronounced dead, and the others admitted in serious but stable condition. Shaw was a person of interest in the shootings; however he managed to elude the police until he was caught in Cayman last month.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service reported that shortly before 12.30 pm on Friday, 8 July, they arrested Shaw in the vicinity of Seymour Road, George Town.
Firearms Response Unit officers in a marked service vehicle approached a vehicle with two occupants. The vehicle's occupants attempted to evade the police and rammed into the police vehicle, causing their vehicle to become disabled. Police captured the wanted man, while the other man escaped on foot.
