The Golden Grove police in St Thomas are now probing the circumstances in which 22- year-old Oshane Reid, a labourer of Wheelersfield in the parish, was shot and killed on Wednesday night.

They have since taken a man, of a Johnson Mountain address, believed to be in his 20s, into custody in connection with the death. It is alleged that Reid had a dispute with the man over an illegal firearm.

Police reported that about 8 o'clock on Wednesday night, the deceased was at home alone when a gunman entered and shot him several times.

The police said Reid was taken to the Princess Margaret Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.
