ST ANN, Jamaica - Twenty-one-year-old Imaro McKenzie, otherwise called ‘Six’, of Dam Head, Steer Town in St Ann was slapped with several charges, including murder, for an incident dating back to July 2022.

In addition to the murder charge, McKenzie is also facing a possession of a prohibited weapon charge and unauthorised possession of ammunition following the shooting death of 29-year-old Chevaughn Jones, otherwise called ‘Ziggy’, of Greenwich Acres, Mammee Bay, in the parish on July 2, 2022.

Reports from the St. Ann’s Bay police are that about 9:30 pm, on Friday, July 1, Jones was at a shop in the area when he was pounced upon by McKenzie, who opened gunfire hitting him in the upper body. The police were alerted and Jones was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

McKenzie was taken into custody and charged after a question-and-answer interview was conducted in the presence of his attorney on May 17, this year.

His court date is being finalised.
