Reggae star charged over gunman

Luciano's A New Day was nominated for a Grammy in 2001

Reggae singer Luciano has been charged with harbouring a fugitive who shot and wounded three police officers, Jamaican police have said.

Police Superintendent McArthur Sutherland said the 44-year-old - real name Jepther McClymont - was charged and released after posting bail.

The stand-off last week ended with the fugitive gunman, Andrew Senior, being killed at Luciano's home in Kingston.

Two of the injured officers are still being treated in hospital.

Luciano's record A New Day was nominated for best reggae album at the Grammy Awards in 2001.
