Jamaica police arrest 3 suspects in triple murder

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) Police have arrested three men for a triple murder in northern Jamaica earlier this month.

The three victims were in a wholesale shop in St. James parish on Oct. 13. when they were fatally shot by a group of gunmen. The business owner was also shot in the attack but was treated and released from a local hospital.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force says the three suspects have turned themselves in, two of them accompanied by their attorneys.

Police said Sunday that their identities are being withheld by police pending further investigation.

Detectives have not provided a possible motive for the attack.
