Earlier this week, classes have been suspended at the St Andrew-based Lannaman’s Preparatory School after a parent was shot dead on a suspected contract killing.
In that killing, the parent, Ainsley Folkes, had just dropped off his son about 8 o’clock and returned to his car parked near the school gate when he was approached by a man who pulled a firearm and shot him several times.
Folkes managed to run onto the school compound where he collapsed and died.
