Three people have been arrested in connection to the killing of a Chinese supermarket operator inside his store in Jamaica last week.

He Jing, 36, was fatally shot inside his supermarket in Just 1 Plaza in Orange Bay, Hanover Paris, in the late afternoon on Wednesday. CCTV footage captured the gruesome moment when two armed men went inside the store and started shooting the man, known as Archie, as he stood behind the register.

Authorities believe the shooters’ motive was robbery since they were filmed stealing money, liquor and other items from the store after shooting He multiple times.
