The St Ann police are investigating the fatal shooting of an auto electrician during a suspected carjacking in Swamp district, Moneague last night.

The deceased has been identified as 50-year-old Dwight Abrahams of Middlesex.

It is reported that about 9:35 p.m., Abrahams drove his black Toyota Wish motor car to a bar in Swamp district. 

While there, he was pounced upon by men who opened gunfire, which hit him in his midsection.

The gunmen then drove off with his car.

Abrahams was taken to the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) camp in Moneague from where he was rushed by ambulance to the St Ann's Bay Regional Hospital.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Senior Superintendent Dwight Powell said initial investigations point to robbery as the motive as his car was stolen.

The police, in the meantime, are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Up to May 27, St Ann recorded 17 murders, three fewer than last year.
