The police are investigating a murder and arson attack which occurred in Olympic Gardens, St. Andrew Wednesday morning.

A man was shot dead and eight houses set ablaze on One Fourth Street in a section of the community known as Bell Rock.

Superintendent Gary Francis, commanding officer for St. Andrew South, told RJR News that 20 people, including eight children, have been left homeless.

A taxicab was also damaged in the fire.

Superintendent Francis said units from the Kingston & St. Andrew Fire Department responded to the fire which started around one o’clock.

The charred remains of a man were found after the fire was doused and he was identified as Andrew McLean (also known as Peter and Killa).

It was then discovered that the body had “multiple gunshot wounds,” the superintendent revealed.

“The general area was quiet prior to this incident. We are still investigating to find out what led to this case of murder and then the multiple arson,” he said.
