Cops probing whether activity of singer’s ‘violence producer’ son led to attack
1 hrs ago
A police service vehicle is parked in the McKinley Crescent area of St Andrew on Wednesday following a gun attack on Tuesday night that left two people dead and three others hospitalised.
Investigators are working to establish a motive for the killing of two men, including lead vocalist for Mighty Diamonds Donald ‘Tabby’ Shaw, and the injuring of three others in a gun attack on McKinley Crescent in St Andrew on Tuesday night.
Speaking to Loop News on Wednesday, head of the St Andrew South Police Division, Senior Superintendent Kirk Ricketts, said preliminary intel indicates that the incident might have been linked to ongoing gang conflict in the area.
In fact, investigators are now trying to figure out if the activities of Shaw’s son, who the SSP said is a known “violence producer”, might have resulted in his father’s death.
“Of the five persons affected by the incident, we have observed that Mr Shaw has a son that is known to us. In fact, the son is currently in custody [for murder]; he is a known violence producer from this particular area,” SSP Ricketts said on Wednesday.
“Intelligence assessment is now being done to see if the son’s activity could have led to his father being targeted,” he added
The senior policeman said the deceased men, Shaw and Owen Beckford, were standing with a group of people at a shop in the area when a gunman walked up and opened fire hitting five people.
Both Shaw and Beckford succumbed to their injuries and the other three people have been hospitalised.
