Jamaica police say several people questioned but no arrests in slaying of British girl

Jamaican police say some people have been questioned in the fatal shooting of an 8-year-old British girl visiting a rural village, but authorities say no one has been arrested in the case.

Assistant Police Commissioner Devon Watkis said Monday that "a number of people" have been temporarily detained for interviews about the shooting. He didn't say how many but added that no charges have been filed.

Imani Green was mortally wounded when a lone gunman opened fire Friday night on a group of her family members as they gathered at a relative's roadside shop in Trelawny parish. Three adult relatives were wounded.

Imani was from the Balham district of south London and was visiting relatives in Jamaica.
