Three suspects have been charged with the murder of 19-year-old Menelik McClymont, who died on Sunday, February 28, as a result of stab wounds he received the day before.
McClymont is the son of reggae singer Luciano.
Charged are three teenagers including Jerome Coombs, 18, of Bob Marley Boulevard in Cooreville Gardens, Kingston 20; Camanie Shaw, 18; and Nashlyn Anderson, 18, both of Ambrook Lane, Kingston 10.
They are scheduled to appear in the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court in St Andrew, on Friday.
McClymont was stabbed several times on Saturday, February 27, around 2:30 pm in the vicinity of Parkington Plaza on Half-Way-Tree Road, St Andrew, according to information from the Constabulary Communication Network (CCN)
He was rushed to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.
The day his son died, Luciano appealed in a video post on social media that anyone who had information should report the matter to the police.
“Dem kill mi son. The youth a go school … Anyone who have any information leading up to this,” he said, in part.
