As the up and coming artist makes steady recovery after being senselessly shot, Vision has been informed that he has been transferred to a new parish as his medical treatment continues at a new medical facility.
On Sunday June 28, 2020 while enroute from a Funeral in a convoy of three vehicles which stopped on the main road … the reggae artist was shot in what appears to be a drive by shooting. Was he targeted? We are yet to find out. One thing we all agree on is this madness needs to stop.
Michael Smith aka Rygin King is recovering well. We wish him full and speedy recovery.
The police report that he (King) was shot in the back, chest and leg in Westmoreland, Jamaica W.I.
We also understand a female friend was killed in the said attack. A third victim was shot in the leg and is expected to make a full recovery. His injuries are not considered life threatening.
God is able.
