Businessman Dennis Ramdial was on Monday afternoon shot dead outside his business place on Beechwod Avenue, St Andrew, just three months after his son, Richard, was murdered in a sports utility vehicle along Ruthven Road.

Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay says Dennis Ramdial was standing outside his business place when gunshots were heard.

She said it was later found that the businessman was shot.

He was rushed to hospital where he died.

On July 13, Ramdial's son, was shot more than a dozen times as he sat in his Mercedes Benz sport utility vehicle in rush hour traffic along Ruthven Road.
