Michael ‘Mal’ Levy was killed on Sunday.

Communications Officer at The Police Corporate Communications Unit Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay says the police are following what she describes as interesting lines of enquiry into Sunday's murder of 65-year-old Mandeville businessman Michael ‘Mal’ Levy.

No arrest has yet been made in the murder, but the police are probing the possibility that the motive was robbery.

Levy, who owned several plazas in the Manchester capital was attending a party in Comfort district outside of Mandeville when he was approached by gunmen who allegedly attempted to rob him of his watch.

He reportedly fended off the man and engaged him in an argument when he was shot.

Levy is the second businessman to be killed in the parish in two months.

The other was Trevor Meikle who was killed in a robbery during an islandwide power blackout.
