YORK, Westmoreland — Eleven-year-old Ricardo Dove was shot dead by gunmen who invaded his home in this quiet farming community on Monday night.
A distraught Robert Dove told the Jamaica Observer yesterday that some time after 11:00 pm, he was asleep in his bedroom when he heard an explosion coming from the room occupied by Ricardo and his younger brother.
The grieving father recounted that as he called Ricardo’s name and got a faint response, there came another explosion.
