Christopher 'Dudus' Coke

Michael Christopher Coke, the son of Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, was shot and injured during Nomination Day activities in West Kingston on Friday.

Superintendent Howard Chambers, head of the Kingston West Division, said that the incident took place as Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters gathered for Nomination Day activities in the western end of the capital city.

"A group of JLP supporters gathered right in front of the plaza. The police was there in the vicinity, as part of the escort covering the Nomination Day activities. They heard the explosion, saw men who also challenged them," Chambers said.

Dudus is serving 23 years in a US federal prison after he pleaded guilty to drug trafficking.
