Spragga Benz's son shot dead by Kingston cops

As the euphoria surrounding the emphatic performance of the athletes at the Olympiad dissipates, the country’s murder rate continues to steamroll ahead at a record pace. The latest victim is the 17 year-old Carlton Grant, son of entertainer Spragga Benz, who was shot and killed by police last night.

Reports from CCN are that about 11:50 p.m., members of a police party were on patrol along Church Street when two men were seen on a bicycle. They were signalled to stop and they complied. On approach of the lawmen one of the men pulled a gun and fired at the Police. The fire was returned and the men ran. The area was searched and Grant was found suffering from gunshot wounds. A .45 semi-Automatic pistol serial number N338142 was taken from him. The injured Grant was taken to the Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Spragga Benz could not be reached for comment as the one876 staff was told that he was overseas. We were told that he is extremely close to his eldest son. We wish Benz's family our most heartfelt condolences at this time.The deejay, whose real name is Carlton Grant, combined with soca star Kevin Lyttle to rise to the top of the Billboard Single Chart with the dancehall remix of Lyttle's 'Turn Me On'. The song climbed the charts for 12 weeks until August 12th, 2004 where it reached #1.
