A man was shot and killed on the compound of the Maxfield Park Comprehensive Health Centre in St Andrew this morning.

It is reported that 19-year-old Rushekie "CoCo" Bailey was at health facility seeking treatment for a gunshot wound which he received last week Sunday in his community on Maxfield Avenue when he was attacked by gunmen.

The bizarre murder occurred in full view of other patients and health officials.

It is reported that loud explosions were heard around 10:00 a.m and persons including, doctors and nurses, had to scamper for cover.

Following the shooting, Bailey was seen suffering from gunshot wounds.

He succumbed to his injuries.

The attackers escaped.

The health centre has been closed as police investigators probe the incident.
