Investigators probing the fatal shooting of a businessman in St Andrew on Tuesday hope CCTV footage can help them apprehend suspects behind the attack.

Ren 'Basil' Malcolm was shot dead at his Courtney Walsh Drive-based bike store about 1pm.

CCTV footage shows moments before and after the shooting.

In the video, a man is seen engaging Malcolm in a brief conversation before the businessman was shot multiple times. A lone gunman - resembling the man seen earlier talking to Malcolm - is later seen firing at another man while making his escape from the premises.

Further footage shows the injured shop owner being assisted by about three men to a waiting car.

Reports are that Malcolm and a licensed firearm holder, who was shot and injured while challenging the gunman, were rushed to a hospital, where the shop owner succumbed to his injuries. The condition of the licensed firearm holder is not known at this time.
