CLARENDON, Jamaica — A 41-year-old man, who was accused of having sex with a minor, was fatally shot while at his house in Raymonds District, Hayes in Clarendon Saturday night.
According to a police source, Seion ‘Juba’ Copeland had just arrived home and went to the back of his house to fetch water when neighbors heard what they believed to be gunshots. They summoned the police.
Lawmen arrived to find Copeland on his back, in a pool of blood, with gunshot wounds to his head and upper body. The incident occurred at about 10:45 pm.
