British girl, 8, is killed in Jamaica
A community has been left in shock after an eight-year-old British girl was shot dead in Jamaica.
Reports named the schoolgirl as Imani Green, who was killed in the town of Duncans on Friday night.
Imani, from Balham, south London, is understood to have died after being shot twice, including once in the head, in what may have been a revenge attack, reports suggested.
Imani's sister, Janella Parmer, told the BBC: "We heard gunshots. We ran outside and shouted 'Imani, Imani, Imani'.
"I picked her up off the ground and realised she was still breathing. I flagged down a car and they drove us to hospital. The rest is history."
Neighbours in Britain have spoken of their sorrow at the girl's death.
One friend of the family, who asked not to be named, said: "This is a close-knit community, so this is going to hurt us."
Another said: "She was just a little girl. This is all so sad. We're distraught."
Neighbours said members of the girl's family had left their home to catch a flight to Jamaica early yesterday to be with Imani's mother.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national in Jamaica on January 11.
"We are providing consular assistance and liaising with local authorities in Jamaica."
Shadow justice secretary Sadiq Khan, MP for Tooting, said he was "devastated" at the news.
Imani arrived in Jamaica with her mother shortly before the new year to stay with relatives.
The girl was said to have been with relatives at a cafe owned by her cousin when a gunman entered and opened fire following an argument. Three people were injured in the shooting.
