The suspect in Monday‘s fatal shooting of six-year-old Timoral McCallum on Text Lane in Central Kingston, is in hospital under police guard.   The police say the 55-year-old man who had fled the community shortly after the shooting, returned some time after 9 o’clock on Monday night but was attacked by residents who inflicted serious injuries.   Dennis Brooks, Senior Communications Strategist for the Jamaica Constabulary Force, told Radio Jamaica News that the suspect was rescued by the police and taken to a nearby medical facility.    The police say the suspect, who they believe is a “self-taught gunsmith”, may have been repairing the firearm when it went off, killing the child.    The illegal firearm has not been recovered.    Timoral would have celebrated her seventh birthday on December 27.
