#JamaicaGleaner APRIL 20, 2024: On Friday, Stacy-Ann Dunkley stared blankly as she spoke about her son Raniel Plummerís request to be transferred from Irwin High School in St James. That request will never come to fruition as the 15-year-old boy was stabbed and killed by another male student outside the school compound on Thursday afternoon. According to the Montego Bay Police, Plummer was approached and attacked by a group of students after exiting the grounds of the secondary institution. During the assault, the police said that Plummer was stabbed in the chest by a 14-year-old male student. It is being alleged that the assault was stemming from an earlier altercation.
