MANCHESTER, Jamaica — The man who was killed in a shooting incident in the community of Grey Ground here yesterday has been identified as 50-year-old Winston Lowe, otherwise called ‘Chinna Man’.

Police reports are that about 11:30 am, he was approached and fired on by gunmen while sitting beside a shed on his premises located along the Grey Ground main road.
