Deejay ‘Aidonia’, born Sheldon Lawrence is in police custody in connection with the shooting of a man on Saturday night, police told THE STAR yesterday.

The deejay known for such hits as Dat’s Up and Ukku, was arrested along with three other men and could be charged today following an identification parade, police say.

The Grants Pen police told THE STAR that investigations have so far unearthed that the incident reportedly occurred after a man had stabbed up a car belonging to either Aidonia or someone from his entourage.

The police say two other men came on the scene shortly after and were thought to be the person(s) who had damaged the car. They were allegedly driven down and held by Aidonia and his entourage. The police say according to the information received, the men were cornered and a gun was pulled and they were beaten and one of them shot. The other man reportedly escaped, while the injured man was taken to hospital where he was admitted.

Police got wind of the incident and launched an investigation. Later that same night, Aidonia and the two men turned up at the Grants Pen Police Station and were taken into custody.

The man who managed to escape, Demar ‘Demmy’ Palmer, was reportedly shot and killed the following day. Palmer, 25, a bus conductor from Red Hills Road, St. Andrew, address, was shot dead on Sunday afternoon.

Police say that at about 12:45 p.m. Palmer and a group of friends were on a lane off Red Hills Road St. Andrew, when gunmen entered and opened fire. Palmer was hit and subsequently rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Constant Spring CIB is investigating that incident.
