National Security Minister Dr Horace Chang described the incident as tragic and traumatic and expressed sympathy for the families of the victims

“It is normal Jamaican practice for families after church, after Sunday dinner, to take the family to go out and watch a game of football or other types of recreation. In no way would they anticipate this kind of violence,” Chang said of the gun attack at the company-staged event in Spring Village, Old Harbour

“We are seeing across the island some very serious brutal and violent attacks on individuals involving women and children and individuals who are not even aware of what is happening getting hurt.”
