The Major Investigation Division (MID) is probing the murder of an American investor in Ocho Rios, St. Ann, on Monday.
He has been identified as 53-year-old Phillip Bradley Crain, a real estate investor of Villa Baraby, Shaw Park in the parish.
Investigators say, about 4:30 p.m., Mr. Crain was at home when two armed men entered and demanded money.
When their demands were not met, the men opened fire on Mr. Crain, killing him on the spot.
His wife and son were not harmed.
Mr. Crain, who has been living in Jamaica for the last 25 years, is said to be a major figure in the local cannabis sector.
He recently returned to the island from a trip to the US.
Radio Jamaica News understands that investigators are reviewing CCTV footage in a bid to identify the killers.
