An arrest warrant was issued in Kingston, Jamaica, on Wednesday for an unemployed handyman sought in the fatal shootings of reggae star Peter Tosh and two other people during a robbery last week, a detective said. The handyman, identified as Dennis Lobban, 33, was paroled recently from a prison in Spanish Town and had been to Tosh's home several times, a detective close to the investigation told the Associated Press. Tosh, 42, and Wilton (Doc) Brown died last Friday night on the way to the hospital after three gunmen forced their way into the musician's home. The third victim, disc jockey Jeff Dixon, also known as "Free-I Tafari," died Monday of head wounds.
