Up-and-coming Dancehall artiste Humble Kid was injured last week during in a drive-by shooting in Portland Cottage, Clarendon.

The 2018 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall contestant, real name Nicholas Shepherd, was standing outside of a shop in the community when a car drove up and one of the occupants began to fire shots in his direction before making off.

Shortly after, the singjay was found suffering from injuries to his chest, arm, and right leg.
