Dancehall artiste Elephant Man’s baby mother, Shamar Grant, was reportedly murdered while protecting her son at their home off Cedar Valley Road, St Andrew, Jamaica earlier this week.
According to reports, Grant was shot multiple times as she laid in bed with her 13-year-old son at their home in Cedar Valley Road in St Andrew on Monday, Oct. 3.
Unknown assailants opened fire on Grant through an open window at about 3:20 a.m.
