KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — A Jamaican music producer who worked with top dancehall reggae acts has been found shot to death in his car in Jamaica's capital.
Police say the body of Patrick "Roach" Samuels was discovered inside his Chevrolet Avalanche early Sunday. There have been no arrests.
Investigators say Samuels was attending a house party in the capital of Kingston when he went outside to use his phone. Partygoers reported hearing several gunshots and they later found Samuels' body slumped behind the wheel of his parked car.
The 46-year-old Samuels and Justus Arison founded JA Productions company, which created the popular "Overproof" rhythm. The company has had hits by several dancehall acts including Mavado.
Samuels also worked with dancehall reggae stars Sean Paul and Vybz Kartel.
