The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said a man was shot and killed yesterday afternoon (January 6) in Bog Walk, St. Catherine.
The JCF added that the deceased is 40-year-old Fabian McLeod, otherwise known as ‘Flat Bush’, from Magazine Lane in Bog Walk.
The incident happened about 4:10PM relatively close to the victim’s home.
The JCF told The Beacon: “The man was sitting in a shop when he was pounced upon by two gunmen who opened fire hitting him. He was chased and further shot. The police were alerted.”
Although McLeod lived in Bog Walk, he was also well known in party circles in the nearby town of Linstead. He also sold shoes at Linstead Market before he opened a bar and a shop in his community of Magazine Lane.
McLeod has two children and was the only child for his ailing mother.
