The Whithorne police in Westmoreland are probing the shooting death of a man at a tyre shop.

The deceased has been identified as 28-year-old Tashwayne Coke, a labourer of the community of Darliston, which is in the parish.

The police report that about 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon, Coke and two other men were travelling in a Toyota Voxy minibus to a football match when the vehicle picked up a puncture along the Petersfield main road.

The driver pulled over at a nearby tyre shop and while at the location, a man walked over to the occupants, brandished a handgun, and opened fire hitting Coke multiple times.

The gunman then escaped.
