KINGSTON, JAMAICA (AP) - A Jamaican music producer for a top reggae label has been shot to death outside his home in an upscale neighborhood of the Caribbean island’s capital.

Police in Kingston say Joel Chin was attacked late Tuesday after he stepped out of his car in the driveway of his home. Police have not disclosed a possible motive.

Chin was the grandson of Vincent “Randy” Chin, a pioneering reggae producer from Jamaica who established VP Records in New York. The company has made stars out of artists like Sean Paul and Beenie Man.

VP Records says Joel Chin moved from New York to Jamaica two years ago to spend more time on music.

The label says the 35-year-old was instrumental in launching the careers of several reggae stars.
