An eight-year-old girl from London has been shot dead while visiting family in Jamaica, according to local media reports.
She was reportedly shot after an argument broke out at a store in the north coast area of Duncans and a man then opened fire.
A Foreign Office spokesperson said, "We can confirm the death of a British national in Jamaica on the 11th January. We are providing consular assistance and liaising with local authorities".
