Suspect charged in British man’s murder

A 23-year-old Clarendon man has been charged with the murder of a British tourist in Montego Bay, last month.


Sean Patterson, was shot dead in Bogue Hill, Montego Bay, St. James on Monday, January 2.


Javaughn Brown of Baillieston, in Clarendon has been charged with his murder.


Reports are that at about 12:10 PM, Patterson was at a guest house, when a gunman approached him and opened gunfire hitting him to the upper body. The police were summoned, and Patterson pronounced dead at hospital.


The police say comprehensive work by detectives, led to Brown’s arrest during an operation in Kingston by members of the Counter-terrorism and Organized Crime branch (C-TOC). He was later interviewed in the presence of his attorney and gave a caution statement.


The investigative file was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecution, who recommended that brown be charged with murder and using a prohibited weapon to commit murder. Brown’s court date is being arranged.
