KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Jamaica's police force is offering a rare reward for information leading to the capture of a man suspected in a quadruple killing.

In a Sunday statement, the Jamaica Constabulary Force identified the suspect as Anward Anthony Hinds. They say he is a primary suspect in a May 27 shooting in the Caribbean island's St. Elizabeth parish that killed three farmers and a 73-year-old shopkeeper.

The murdered men were part of a group playing dominoes outsides a shop in Clermont Square when they were attacked by at least two gunmen.

Police are offering nearly $10,000 to anyone who can supply information leading to the arrest of Hinds.

Earlier this year, Police Commissioner Carl Williams sent more officers into Jamaica hot spots to combat a worrying increase in killings.
