CLARENDON, Jamaica - A 23-year-old Clarendon man was on Saturday, February 4, charged with the murder of a British man who was visiting Jamaica.
Charged is Javaughn Brown of Baillieston in the parish. He is accused of killing Sean Patterson, who was shot dead in Bogue Hill, Montego Bay, St James on Monday, January 2.
Reports are that at about 12:10 pm, Patterson was at a guest house when a lone gunman approached him and opened gunfire hitting him in the upper body.
The police were summoned and Patterson was pronounced dead at hospital.
Comprehensive work done by detectives led to Brown’s arrest during an operation in Kingston by members of the Counter-terrorism and Organized Crime Branch (C-TOC).
He was later interviewed in the presence of his attorney; he subsequently gave a caution statement.
The investigative file was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), who recommended that Brown be charged with murder and using a prohibited weapon to commit murder.
Brown’s court date is being arranged.
