Jahshii’s brother shot and killed in Grants Pen
Dancehall artiste Jashii

The police have confirmed that David Clarke, who is said to be the brother of dancehall entertainer Mluleki Clarke, popularly known as Jahshii, was shot and killed by gunmen in Grants Pen, St Andrew on Saturday morning. Another man was shot and injured in the incident.

The police confirmed that the attack happened about 2:05 on Saturday morning.

Police report that the 29 year-old labourer David Clarke and another man were at a yard in Grants Pen when armed men approached and opened fire. Clarke was shot and killed, while the other man was injured.

“Everyone called him Mosiah. He is the one who ran his father's shop, he is a humble yute, nice yute, everybody love him," one Grants Pen resident told OBSERVER ONLINE.

"Nutsy, Jahshii's father, owned a shop, and Mosiah run it for him more time, he is the one who is always there, even at 2 in the morning, yu can go there and it is open. The yute no involved inna anything, is a good yute."

Jahshii’s family has been under a dark cloud since June of this year when the deejay’s name surfaced in an investigation regarding the death of businessman Omar ‘Romie’ Wright.

The Born Fighter deejay later surrendered himself to the police in the company of his attorneys, King’s Counsel Peter Champagnie and Richard Lynch.

He was questioned and released by the cops about the June 7 murder.

In July of this year, a motor vehicle which Jahshii owned was attacked by armed men on Constant Spring Road after an event held to mark the artiste's birthday. Six men, all members of the entertainer’s entourage, were shot and injured. The entertainer reportedly left the event in another car and escaped injury.
