A 33-year-old British man has been shot dead by the pool of a villa in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica.

Sean Patterson, a personal trainer from West London, was found with gunshot wounds to his upper body and head after witnesses reported hearing gun shots.

A 34-year-old suspect, believed to have been deported to Jamaica from the UK in 2013, has been arrested.

Mr Patterson is thought to have been shot on the pool deck following a short chase.

He had arrived in Jamaica on 29 December, spending the first three days in an apartment in Freeport before checking into the One Love Villa in the Bogue Hill area of Montego Bay.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said they were ‘supporting the family of a British man who died in Jamaica and are in contact with the local authorities’.
