One man was shot and killed after ringing in the New Year at a Black and White Party held at the National Arena, Independence Park, Kingston 3.

According to reports from the CCN, at about 5:15 on Friday morning, the 31 year old man was among patrons leaving the function when explosions were heard.  His body was later seen with multiple gunshot wounds.

The MIT and the half way tree CIB are investigating.

While numerous efforts to get a comment from the organizers of the Black and White Affair proved futile.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
