Local reports say that the lead singer of the Jamaica reggae group Mighty Diamonds was one of two people who succumbed after a drive-by shooting on Tuesday night.
According to Jamaica Observer, Tabby Diamond, 67, whose real name is Donald Orlando Shaw, was among people gathered at a section of the McKinley Crescent community when shooters opened fire from a passing motor vehicle.
The online publication reported that the entertainer and another unidentified man were later pronounced dead at hospital.
Three other people sustained injuries as a result of the shooting incident.
