KINGSTON, Jamaica – A man said to be a dancehall artiste was shot dead during an altercation with the police on Tuesday on Windward Road in east Kingston.

The deceased has been identified as 28-year-old Jerome Todd, otherwise called ‘One Krome’ of Tiverton Road in Rockfort, Kingston 2.

The circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear at this time. However, one 9mm pistol with a magazine containing three 9mm rounds of ammunition was removed from the scene.

The police’s Corporate Communications Unit confirmed the incident.

Preliminary reports online suggest that Todd is a deejay known for the song, ‘Call Pon Jah’, but the police could not confirm that Todd was a dancehall artiste.

The matter was reported to the Independent Commissions of Investigations (INDECOM) and the Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau (IPROB).
