A man was shot and killed in Fletcher’s Land, Kingston this morning.



The man, whom residents identified as Oshane Francis was shot and killed at John’s Lane in the community about 7.30 a.m.

Investigators believe the murder is linked to the theft of gold bars in downtown Kingston last month.

One of the robbers was shot and killed and another was shot and injured during the robbery.



The police have since arrested and charged five men, including a police constable in connection with the theft.
