Son of Dancehall artist and Shottas, star, Spragga Benz was killed under questionable circumstances late Saturday night in Kingston, Jamaica.
According to police reports, Carlton 'Carlie' Grant Jr., who also appeared in the 2002 Shottas flick, was shot when members of a police party patrol stopped two men on a bicycle along Church Street, Kingston.
Upon approach, one of the men pulled a gun and fired at the police who returned fire. The men took off and after the area was searched, Grant was found suffering from gunshot wounds and a .45 semi-automatic pistol was found in his possession.
The injured Grant was taken to the Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Spragga Benz, who was on tour in England at the time his 17-year-old son was murdered, returned to the island two days ago.
Spragga Benz is known for his songs like “A1 Lover” and “Oh Yeah” with Foxy Brown and “Turn Me On” featuring Kevin Lyttle.
The popular artist has also worked with a number of rappers, including Pras from the Fugees, Nas, Kardinal Offishall, Bow Wow and others.
According to reports, he has not yet been in touch with the police.
The incident is still under investigation.
I wish I had a camera lens To film the things my mind had said, Before they reached my mouth And got all bent.
