Broken mum of Brit killed in Jamaica says my hearts in pain over sons attack

The mother of a British tourist who was shot multiple times while holidaying at a luxury villa in Jamaica has said "my heart is in pain".

Personal trainer Sean Patterson, 33, from West London, was reportedly gunned down during a stay at the One Love Guest House in Bogue Hill, St James, on Saturday.

Jamaica Constabulary Force told the PA news agency officers from Montego Bay Police had received reports the 33-year-old was standing by the accommodation's on-site pool when witnesses heard “loud explosions”.

Mr Patterson, a British national, was then shot multiple times after a short chase. He was rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds to his upper body and head, but was unable to be revived.

She said: "My son Sean Patterson has been shot dead in Jamaica, my heart's in pain.

His sister Sarah Wright said the family had been left "heartbroken".

She said: "Well that’s one way to start the new year, finding out your baby brother has been murdered in Jamaica.
