Currently mourning the death of his mother, Ms Bridgette Gardner Ivey, who passed away over a week ago after a prolonged battle with cancer, reggae singer Sanchez has been met with more unfortunate news.
On Saturday, the Jamaican vocalist, whose given name is Kevin Jackson, lost his son following an early morning attack by gunmen in the Bedward Gardens community in August Town. The men were among a group of individuals gambling outside in the wee hours when they were pounced upon by armed men who opened fire.
When the shooting subsided, the police responded to a call. On arrival, they found three men suffering from gunshot wounds along a dirt track. They were taken to the hospital, where they succumbed to their injuries.
The victims of the triple murder were identified as Rasheed ‘Buppy’ Edwards, a 24-year-old Mason, 18-year-old Keno Wray, also called ‘Brains’ and the third man only known as ‘Jackson’ o/c ‘Kidz’ identified as the son of singer Sanchez’.
