A number of killings in the Glen area or of Glen residents in recent weeks are the result of an ongoing feud between rival groups, sources in the know have told iWitness News.

On July 3, police arrested and charged Lejah “Soups” Alexander, a 34-years-old labourer of Glen with the June 29 murder of Raheem Durham.

Durham, a 20-year-old bus conductor, also of Glen, died after being shot twice in the head in the East St. George community.

Alexander was arraigned at the Serious Offences Court on July 5 and has been remanded to prison until Sept. 30 for a preliminary inquiry.

On May 21, Dwayne Sandy, a 33-year-old labourer, of Brighton/Glen, was gunned down in Calliaqua.

Two masked assailants shot Sandy, a national footballer, shortly after he arrived at a shop in the East St. George town.

In April, three Glen residents — Shane Cabral, 24, Dale Hooper, 19, and Keon Scott, 45 – were shot and killed by unknown assailants.
