INVESTIGATORS say that at least one person was taken into custody last evening in connection with yesterday's murder of well-known Kingston businessman Melvin Chung.
Chung was gunned down outside one of his establishments in downtown Kingston.
A police source told the Jamaica Observer that at least 14 persons were questioned following the murder, but that only one person has been arrested.
Chung, who operated several Total service stations in the Corporate Area, was attacked and shot multiple times outside the premises located on East Street.
The incident occurred about 2:00 pm, said the police source, adding that it appeared that Chung may have been trailed by his attackers to the area.
Yesterday, head of the Kingston Central Police Division, Superintendent Steve McGregor, said Chung's killers stole an undetermined sum of cash, and two firearms — which the source identified as a 9mm pistol and a .38 revolver — from him before fleeing the scene.
The Constabulary Communication Network, the police information arm, confirmed the killing late yesterday, but was unable to release details of the incident up to press time yesterday.
Funeral home workers remove the body of businessman Melvin Chung from where he was murdered on
East Street in downtown Kingston, yesterday.
Investigators comb the area where businessman Melvin Chung, operator of several Total service
stations in the Corporate Area, was murdered yesterday afernoon.
