The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) is now investigating a shooting at the Taboo Night Club in Montego Bay, St James early this morning in which two men were shot.

The incident occurred shortly after five this morning.

The Police say popular businessman and owner of the club, Corey Todd was closing the establishment when two men on a motorcycle fired shots at him, hitting him in the right hand.

A policeman who was at the location responded by firing at the gunmen.

One was hit and died on the spot.

It is understood that the policeman was a patron of the club, however, there are conflicting reports that he was part of Todd's security detail.

INDECOM's Senior Public Relations Officer Kahmille Reid says the commission is now taking statements on the incident.

Meanwhile, the police are theorising that the attempted murder of Todd, may have been a hit.

Todd, who also operates Taboo in New Kingston, is said to be in surgery.
