Following the murder of Chinese national 36-year-old He Jing on Wednesday, the police have arrested three suspects in relation to the crime.
Jing, a resident of East Mountain Pride Avenue, Kingston, was shot multiple times at his supermarket in Orange Bay, Hanover.
Head of Area One Police, Assistant Commissioner Clifford Chambers, relayed that the police have discerned the motive of the murder as a robbery, and following an investigative lead, three arrests have since been made.
The police are currently trying to locate other suspects that may have been involved, and investigators will be relying on eyewitnesses as well as digital and forensic capabilities to aid in the probe.
In the CCTV camera footage of the murder/robbery that was released, two armed, masked men can be seen entering the supermarket, and one immediately opens fire on Jing at the cashier counter. The customers present take cover, and the men proceed to steal money, liquor, and other items that they carry away in bags.
Chambers has requested that members of the public, with any information that may assist in their investigation, immediately contact the police.
