Following allegations circulating online that dancehall artiste Jahshii was at the centre of a fatal incident in Constant Spring, the artiste’s lawyer, Peter Champagnie, has relayed his client’s proclamation of total innocence.
Omar “Romie” Wright was shot and killed on June 7 on Shortwood Road by unknown assailants. Following Wright’s fatal shooting, reports alleged that he and Jahshii’s mother, who operates a wholesale business in the area, were engaged in an altercation prior to his death.
Wright reportedly threw water in her face, which led to an argument with Jahshii, and he is said to have been killed hours later. The St. Andrew police later expressed interest in speaking with the deejay.
According to Champagnie, his client cooperated fully with the police and was interviewed by detectives on Wednesday after voluntarily turning himself in. Champagnie further reiterated his client’s proclamation of innocence while speaking with the Jamaica Observer.
“Jahshii has declared, in no uncertain terms, that, contrary to social media reports suggesting that he had a hand to play in the demise of Omar Wright, he was not involved, in no shape or form, in that matter or any other matter,” Champagnie stated.
Champagnie added that Jahshii has asked that no one take the law into their own hands and cooperate with the authorities, providing them with any information pertaining to Wright’s death if possible. In regards to reports that the Prosperity deejay has received death threats, his legal team shared that they are not aware of any such threats against his life.
