PICTURED: Mavado

THE SON of dancehall artist Mavado has been charged with murder and other serious offences.

According to police reports, armed men barged into Thomas’ home in the southeastern parish of St Andrew and shot him, chopped him with a machete, and then set him on fire.

According to police officers, a group of armed men barged into Thomas’ home while he was sleeping and murdered him by shooting and chopping him.

His home was later set ablaze and his body was severely burned. Police say his murder was a reprisal killing for a June 2 shooting incident where Mavado was shot at by a group of men in the community after having a domestic dispute with one of them.

According to urbanislandz.com, Mavado is currently overseas despite police issuing a warning for him to return to the island for questioning. The dancehall singer’s attorney told cops that he is planning to meet with them after fulfilling his overseas contractual duties.

The attack came a few days after Mavado was reportedly shot at by a man.
