The police say a woman travelling with ‘Livity’, was also shot multiple times.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Clifford Blake said Livity and his female companion were taken to hospital in serious condition.
Investigators say Livity had just arrived at the popular spot when several men armed with guns approached his car and sprayed it with bullets.
In the meantime, the police say they have taken proactive steps in West Kingston in a move to maintain calm.

According to his sister older Camille “Sandy” Coke, beloved Jamaican gangster Christopher Coke, aka Dudus has changed his worldly ways and has begun taking up a theology course while in prison.
‘Dudus’ is serving a 20 year sentence in the US for running a multimillion dollar drug ring – The Shower Posse – that operated from Kingston Jamaica to more than 10 international countries, including various cities in the US.
Christopher Coke is known to be quite different from the norm of flamboyant kingpins, especially of his magnitude. He is very powerful yet soft spoken, only eats vegan, rarely even known to curse and has a deep spiritual side.
In an interview with Jamaica Gleaner, Sandy a former”Queenpin” turned evangelist, says she has changed her lifestyle and is now taking up religion instead of guns and drugs. She prays that her brothers will follow the light as well.
Here is an excerpt of the interview:
Today, the prayer warrior is no longer influencing people in a negative way, but is busy in the streets praying and encouraging others to follow in the path of Jesus Christ.
But she is not the only one of the Coke clan who has decided to turn to Jesus.
Her sibling, Dudus, who was extradited to the United States on drug-related crimes, is pursuing a theology course in prison, she said.
Camille Coke did not provide details about her brother’s theology course. However, she said, “I have been praying for them (Dudus and another brother Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke). I prayed and ask the Lord to transform the heart of Dudus when he is about to be released. It is the same prayers I prayed for Livity when he was in jail for four years. Look at him now. He is not the same person. He has been attending church, and if you ever hear him pray, you cannot believe it is the same Livity.”
Her prayers are to one day see her two brothers, Dudus and Livity, become powerful men of God, preaching the word.
According to Camille Coke it was while in jail that Sharon James, the mother of Tesha Miller, shared the scripture with her and that prompted her also to make a change in her life. Miller was the alleged leader of the St Catherine-based Clansman gang, one of the most notorious gangs in the country.
The 44-year-old businesswoman also told The Gleaner:
“During the months in jail, at points I became so emotional because I did not even know why or what I was arrested for. One day, they took in a lady who was much older than me. I beg of them to put her in my cell. That lady turned out to be the mother of Tesha Miller. She was a praying woman, and when my hope was fading, she was the one who encouraged me and let me know that only God could fix the problem. She would pray at least three times per day in jail. I was convinced and later decided to give God a chance in my life.”

Brothers Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke and Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke have contrasting personalities, while Dudus is more laid back, ‘Livity’ is said to ruthless. This contrast has led to disagreements at times. One of which was when Eldon Calvert, the alleged leader of the Montego Bay-based Stone Crusher gang, took refuge in Lizard Town while on the run. “The only criminals the President wanted downtown were his own,” said one local source.
