WESTMORELAND, Jamaica — A man, who was jointly charged with murder, was shot dead at the supermarket where he works by an unknown assailant in the full view of shoppers and staff members this morning.

The deceased has been identified as 21-year-old Ochille Hall of a Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland address.

Reports are that about 10:57 am, Hall was on the job when he was approached by the gunman who opened fire hitting him several times.

He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The incident caused customers and workers to scamper for cover.

According to a highly placed OBSERVER ONLINE source, investigators suspect that Hall's murder was a reprisal killing.

Hall's co-accused, Aaron Wedderburn, was shot dead at the entrance of the Savanna-la-Mar Public General Hospital on Thursday, July 27.

The Savanna-la-Mar police are investigating.
