MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica — The Jamaica Observer is reporting that one of two gunmen who shot and injured nightclub manager and dancehall promoter Corey Todd early Thursday morning was shot dead by a cop during a gunfight in St James.
According to reports at about 5:00am Todd was in the process of closing the facility when he was pounced upon and shot by two armed robbers.
The bandits were reportedly challenged by an off-duty police who was passing by.
One of the would-be robbers was subsequently shot and killed, while his crony escaped.
Todd was rushed to hospital where he is said to be undergoing surgery.
The Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) is investigating.
Todd, who once partnered with dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel, operates the Quad and Taboo Night Clubs in New Kingston and the Taboo Night Club in Montego Bay.
