The other day dancehall artist Mavado was shot at in a community called Cassava Piece. As a result of some kind of related feud, two young men are now dead. And there is a curfew in the area. This is right near my daughter’s school. We drove by this morning and all appeared peaceful. Here is the release from the police (note the use of the term “imaginary line” to denote the boundaries):
