SAVANNA-LA-MAR, Westmoreland - The Westmoreland police have released the identity of the alleged shooter who was seen in a widely circulated video peppering supermarket worker Ochille Hall with gunshots at his workplace on August 15.

The police have now launched a massive manhunt for Davion Brown, 22, of a Grange Hill, Westmoreland address for questioning in connection with Hall's murder.

The police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of the 5 feet 10 inches tall Brown to get in touch with the nearest police station.

Meanwhile, Hall, who was of a Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland address, was on bail on a charge of murder at the time of his death. He was shot and killed at the supermarket that he worked by an assailant in the full view of shoppers and staff members.

Reports are that about 10:57 am, Hall was on the job when a gunman approached and opened fire, hitting him several times and causing customers and workers to scamper for cover.

Hall was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A video of the deadly shooting went viral showing the triggerman pumping several shots into Hall, who fell to the floor after he was initially shot.

According to a highly placed Observer West source close to the investigations, Hall's murder was a reprisal.

Hall's co-accused, Aaron Wedderburn, was shot and killed at the entrance of the Savanna-la-Mar Public General Hospital on Thursday, July 27.

The Savanna-la-Mar police are investigating.
