A man who it is believed was mentally ill was reportedly shot dead by a security guard at the Bahia Principe Hotel in St. Ann on Friday morning.
The man was shot at the staff quarters of the resort.
The shooting reportedly took place at approximately 3:30 am after the unidentified man breached a fence at the hotel.
Reports are that the security guard attempted to accost the man, but he began throwing stones.
The officer fired off a warning shot in a bid to ward off the man who was advancing towards him.
However, the naked man reportedly continued to advance toward the security guard who then responded by opening gunfire on the man, hitting him in the upper body.
He was pronounced dead at St. Ann’s Bay Hospital.
Police in St Ann’s Bay are probing the matter.
