WESTMORELAND, Jamaica— A man who was on bail on a murder charge was shot dead by a gunman at a restaurant at Belle Isle Road in Grange Hill, Westmoreland, Thursday morning.
The deceased, identified as 25-year-old Ojay Davidson, otherwise called ‘Six Boss’, from Church Lincoln district in Grange Hill, should not have been in the parish as a condition of his bail, police said.
It was reported that around 8:15 am, Davidson visited a nearby restaurant, where he ordered breakfast and went outside.
Police said while waiting to be served, he was pounced upon by a man armed with a gun, who opened fire, hitting him multiple times in the upper body.
Davidson ran inside the restaurant where he collapsed. The gunman escaped on foot in the area.
Davidson, the police said, was taken to Savanna-la-Mar Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The body was later transported to the morgue pending a post-mortem examination.
Davidson was on bail for murder, and a condition of his bail was for him not to be in Westmoreland and to reside at Church Pen district in Old Harbour, St Catherine, the police said.
Police were unable to say if Davidson’s killing was related to his court case.
