The Chinese business community in Montego Bay was shaken again on Monday when gunmen struck in a brazen daylight robbery, killing a popular businessman and his security guard at the intersection of King and Church Streets in the Western City. Another man, who was wounded in the attack has been admitted for treatment at hospital.
Powell Sr. only received news of his son’s whereabouts the morning after the incident, when he was informed by a friend that his son had been fatally shot. Powell Sr. attempted to call Mark’s phone several times prior to being informed of his fate, but his calls went unanswered. It was then that he began to suspect something was amiss.
