A Chinese businessman yesterday became Clarendon's first homicide victim for 2013.

Forty-year-old Dai Zhigen, who was the operator of a mini mart in the capital, May Pen, was shot and killed while driving on Nelson Street, in the town yesterday morning.

A taxi operator who said he was early on the scene, informed The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that he was eating in a nearby establishment, when he heard a barrage of what sounded like gunshots.

He said when the firing subsided, he went to investigate and saw the injured businessman being taken from a damaged minivan.
