Simpson Miller has released a statement expressing shock and outrage at the incident in which 26 persons - the majority of them children - and also including the school’s principal were killed.
"I weep for the victims and especially the children, cut down in such a brutal manner and at such a tender age," Simpson Miller said.
"On behalf of all Jamaicans, I send my deepest condolences to the families and friends who no doubt are going through a very difficult time. This is a tragedy from which they will never recover."
The incident is the second worst mass shooting in U.S. history, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 when 32 persons were killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself.
