- Jermaine Johnson has been shot in Jamaica and he is currently in the hospital
- The incident occurred in Kingston when he was talking with two other men
- Police are investigating the incident and no arrest has been made so far
Former Premier League star Jermaine Johnson is currently on the hospital bed recovering after being shot in the abdomen in his home country Jamaica.
After playing for the likes of Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City and Sheffield Wednesday in the English topflight, Johnson decided to make a return to his home country.
At the age of 40, Jermaine Johnson's intention is to use his name to lift his country's League high so as to attract other big players.
Jermaine Johnson was said to have been discussing openly with two other individuals before a car drove up to them and the people inside opened fire.
According to the report on UK Mirror, Jermaine Johnson's condition is said to be so serious but he is getting the best medical attention in the hospital.
The report added that the heartbreaking incident is related to the ongoing gang feud in Jamaica in which many have been reportedly killed.
“It doesn't make sense. We rushed there to the hospital in this time of pandemic but Robbie was there and he said Teddy Johnson's nickname was talking, which was good. We wish him the best,'' Johnson's manager at Tivoli Gardens William explained.
Before retiring from international football, Jermaine Johnson played 73 games for the Jamaica national team and scored 12 goals.
He played 231 League games for Sheffield Wednesday and scored 25 goals before he left.
