A man, who was scheduled to appear in court on a murder charge, was shot and killed while cleaning his shoes yesterday morning.

Dead is Milton Grant, a 27-year-old labourer of Thompson Pen in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

Reports are that at about 6 a.m. Grant was at home in the community when explosions were heard.

When checks were made, he was found with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.

The police say that they are yet to establish a motive in the matter.

The matter is being investigated by the St Catherine North Major Investigation Division.
