Crime is undoubtedly Jamaica’s greatest scourge. Most Jamaicans have been affected by violence in some way. Today seven children are without a father as a result of violence.
According to a report from the Gleaner:
The ravaging effects of violent crime ripped into yet another educational institution when gun-toting hoodlums killed a father of seven yesterday before three of his children, sending shockwaves through Tarrant Primary School in St Andrew and the adjoining community.
Three of Rohan Newman’s young children – ages two, four and seven – as well as their mother witnessed the incident.
Newman, otherwise called ‘Short Man’, was reportedly hit at least four times before driving his vehicle, with his children and their mother inside, to a nearby open area where he collapsed and the car crashed.
He was already dead when investigators arrived.
Newman was in the process of dropping off one of the children at the entrance to the primary school at about 7:45 a.m. when three gunmen reportedly pounced.
