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

Head of the Jamaica Consta-bulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit, Superin-tendent Stephanie Lindsay, said Dennis Ramdial was standing outside his business place when gunshots were heard.

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

He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

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.
